3-D Foam Embroidery:
This type of embroidery gets its 3-D appearance from foam thats placed over the area to be embroidered. As the design is stitched, the needle perforates the foam. Once completed, the unused foam is pulled away. Foam is available in a variety of colors and thicknesses.

The topping compacts the wale or nap and holds the stitches above it.
