Here is how I did these boots in the glowforge:
Item and settings
This is the item I am using: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08B39F1FL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And the settings were 900 speed, 9 power, 270 LPI
Setting up glowforge bed
Because the boots will give an interesting view in the app, I decided to use the jig I made for the base of the glowforge to mark a square and the center coordinates of the square will be 10, 4.5
Here is the guide for the jig on the bed of the glowforge:

Setting up boot
For these boots I would not be able to use magnets to get them flat enough because that would require a much stronger magnet then I would suggest for the glowforge. So instead, I used a needle and thread and stitched a few stitches at the spots marks below:
You are the best aunt ever!
I am always amazed at everything you engrave on your glowforge. Those are cute boots made even cuter thanks to you.
Ahhh, that’s one lucky little cowgirl.
Yep, that’s seriously cute! (You’d sell out at the HLF&R.)
Those little boots are so adorable! Another great job girl!!
These are outstanding!! So adorable. Thank you for such a detailed explanation (on all your posts!). I really wish I could get this whole idea down of jigs & marking/using coordinates. For some reason I have a huge mental block. It seems like I’ve become increasingly right-brained in my old age; I’ve developed a big aversion to anything mathematical, yet my creativity has surged.
1Those are absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing your setup

So cute, I just love all the ideas you share for engraving on premade items.
Thanks! I make a lot of items from scratch but like finding equivalent items premade for the community
Those are so darn cute!! I may have to get some to do for our grandson’s twins that are due in September!
Your boots are so sweet. Love them!!
