Haaaalp!   Gilderoy stumped me!  (Man, is that embarassing to admit.)

Okay my crafty friends, does anyone know how to answer this one?

On Movie!Gilderoy's duelling vest there is a gold embroidered emblem over his heart.  It is about the size of the palm of my hand.  It features a large 'G,' capped by a crown, and the crown, of course, features little hearts.  (Awe.)

Bugger if I know how to make one.

If you can name it, I've tried it.  Embroidery hoop with gold floss, by hand.  Embroidery hoop with gold thread, by machine.  I've also searched everywhere for something sorta-kinda-ish-if-you-squint mass manufactured appliques - nothing close.

Suggestions?

Here's the duelling vest.  The dummy it's on has breasts, but the vest is fitted for me -without breasts.  So the dimensions look a bit 'off.'

Gilderoy Dueling vest

All help is appreciated.

EDIT:  Woot!  Problem solved.  Thanks flist!
