Has anyone embroidered on top of HTV?

I have a co-worker that wants some shirts embroidered, but there is a background element that isn't well suited to embroidery. I thought it might look cool, if it's possible, to do that background as HTV, then the foreground embroidered. Has anyone tried this before? Did it look good, or did the two materials clash? Do you need a special vinyl is or standard EasyWeed good enough?

    I haven't tried it but I would think that you would want to "cut out" the part that would need to be embroidered over the top of. In other words, only cut out the part of the HTV that would show and "remove" the part that would have embroidery on it. You can do that using the Boolean join feature in MTC.

    There is a "tear-away" HTV. Stahl's carries it. It sounds just like what you are needed. I haven't used it yet, but my daughter has big plans for it!

    I have done both regular HTV and the stahls tear away with regular becareful as with the tight stitching causes it to rip at the sewing seam. just peal the backing off and use a temporary spray on it t help hold in place then stitch, trim and top stitch.
