My limited experience is that these paints stand up and make a raised  
line. If you apply them in dots or dashes and squint real hard, they  
kinda look like they *could* be stitching, but in real life you  
wouldn't use stitches that big. (OTOH, I may be confusing them with  
"puff paint." ;)

Stenciling is a good way to get many repeated designs on a piece of  
cloth -- it seems to have been used for tournament decorations and  
other stuff where you need to create lots of yardage quickly.   
Admittedly it's kind of messy to do, but nothing's perfect ;)
