Embroidered Text or Designs by redheadstock Embroidered Text or Designs by redheadstock
This is a fairly long tutorial. But, there’s a reason for that. I’d seen several other tutorials out there on Embroidered text, and they just weren’t as detailed or realistic as I would have liked to see them. So, I created this one. With it, you should be able to create some fairly realistic “embroidery” in Photoshop.

While this tutorial should be followable by beginners, to get the full effects from it (knowing how to “play around” with the different settings that I suggest in the end to get your desired effect, for instance), you should know some of the basics of Photoshop. Like, what multiply does versus screen, etc. Even if you’re a beginner, however, you should still be able to follow my more precise instructions and get a good result.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments. Enjoy!

I haven't tried this yet, but would it work on more than just text? If I wanted embroidered leaves on a costume, or such, could this same process be used or is it only for text. (sorry to be such a newbie to manipulations, but I am. I am working on my very first one.)

No problem at all! Yes, it could be used for any shape, really. Thicker designs will work better than thin ones, if you have a choice. And if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask! This is a big tutorial for your first manipulation, so I'll help you through it however I can. :)
