My husband made some lovely little pins for some friends and our kids, and wanted to share the designs
The top piece is cross stitched with 6 strand embroidery floss and then glued to the bottom piece with wood glue. A normal embroidery needle wouldn’t fit through the wood so he ended up using a beading needle. The engraving on the bottom piece gives the thread on the back room to sit in and hides it. Then a pin and clasp was super glued to the back to finish it off.
These were cut on the Medium Walnut Hardwood that came with the Glowforge.
Here are the SVG files. (Note: The square border should be 1.5 inches per side and ignored, our SVG files export small for some reason so we have to expand them in the Glowforge software)
