Thanks! I have thought of this for a while but wasn't sure if it would be good to do on my machine.

Not shades but other plastic like things. I think you should pick your embroidery design kind of careful, as you don't want all the tiny tight dense stitches in it, to instead kind of punch out and cut out that area of the shade while even sewing into it, and have it just drop out, like a cut out, while doing it. So not dense, not tons of tiny tight stitches, less and longer stitches instead, not a bunch of overlapping shaded multi-layered kind of stitching going on and not tons of straight stitch underlay in there either all that stuff, probably not a good thing, plus being a different kind of substrate it's not going to have much push and pull factors at all. Also really put some strong leave in cut away stabilizer under it to try to prevent all that stuff from going on too. Even if you don't put it between two hoop halves and more sticky paper it instead. Unless you think the design is really just so open and weightless you think you can get away without it.

If you just want a border, you could embroider on fabric and fuse the fabric to the shade. I often do that on things I'm afraid to mess up.
