I have some of my wet felted project pieces, which I would like to embroider. Has anyone made their own felt, and used their embroidery machine to decorate it? Any hints/tips?

Yes, I have. Use a heavier needle and some wash away stabilizer on top of your design. The stabilizer being on top keeps the fuzzies from getting tangled in the needle. And use wash away so you can remove it, with cold water, so you don't distort your originally felted item.
