Preparation

Required material:

  • red polyesterfelt, approx 4mm
  • white Alcantara leather
  • green wool, approx. 2 mm thick

Used Trotec Laser:

Tips:

We recommend the use of 100% polyester felt as it is especially suited for processing with the laser.


Step by Step

Step 1:

Open the file "Christmas boot" and send it to the laser. The stocking is made from two different materials. We started with the red stocking. The red felt is engraved and cut.

Laser Settings

  • Engraving (black) - Power: 20 %, speed: 50 %, resolution: 500 ppi
  • Cutting (red) - Power: 65 %,  speed: 3 %, resolution: 1000 Hz

The parameters may vary, depending on the machine you're using and the available laser power; they might therefore vary.


Step 2:

Next, we laser cut the brim of the stocking.

Laser Settings

  • Cutting (red) - Power: 65 %,  speed: 3 %, resolution: 1000 Hz.

The parameters depend on the used machine and the available laser power; they might therefore vary.


Step 3:

Now all you need is a thick wool thread to stitch the different parts together.
