Ok... I did a wood box today.... it was so fun.... new gifts for Christmas... so easy... thank you for all for helping me try this..many tips on google on different ways to achieve a beautiful finished box... I used this same design but forgot to use stabilizer on top.. next one will have it.. it prevents the stitches from sinking into the wood..

yes this design was done on a large hoop.. I have a Quattro and it has very large hoops.. but you can stitch on this type of Balsa wood on any machine.. give it a try .. i am so glad i finally did ...

That is a lovely design to use. I'm too scared to try stitching on balsa.

I can see having balsa wood shaped as bookmarks!!! These would be so cool and versatile. Thanks for the inspiration, now to find some extra time! lol

i think so to but i will try it once one a simpler design.. i thought the needle would cut the wood all to pieces, but it was amazing to watch it stitch out.. thank you again for showing your finished product .. you always try great finished products..
