I use an electric wood buning iron from Walmart that my wife found it in the craft section. It has four tips for a number of pattern options. I tested patters on the large backstrap insert as I won't be using it. Try marking a vertical line with a marker down the back and a few horizontal lines around the sides which wiil help to keep the pattern uniform. :idea:
