HOW TO: Embroider on Balsa Wood

Step 1: Stitch out the 1st Color Stop. We used cut-away stabilizer.

Step 2: Place Balsawood of approx. 0.05" (1.5mm) thick, to cover the outline.
Balsa wood is available in various thicknesses and from most Arts and Crafts Stores.

Step 3: The next Color Stop will secure the Balsa Wood to the Stabilizer.

Step 4: Proceed with the Color Change sheet (included in your download)

Step 5: Use 1 Color or up to 7 Unique Colors

Step 6: Before the Last Color Stop, place a piece of fabric on the back of the hoop (eg felt fabric which does nor fray). Use Fabric Adhesive Spray (eg 505 Spray) to keep the fabric in place.

Step 7: Remove design from hoop and cut all around the edge. We used a zigzag decorate scissor to create a fancy edge. The Balsawood is extremely soft and easy to cut with craft scissors.

Step 8: Stitch out a few Coasters and give a set to your Family and Friends!

Enjoy this Fun Project. If you do not have Balsa Wood...simply stitch on any Fabric which does not fray. We also included 2 Designs with a Beautiful Satin edge to be stitched on any Fabric of your choice.

Happy Stitching!

Hi Carol, thank you for your question. A universal needle 75/11 or Embroidery needle works well for Balsa Wood Projects.
