That's how I understand it. I've started now, so I hope it is right.

Sadly that's all I can do for a week or so.. I designed it for the 2mm leather I'm ordering, so can't do anything else until it turns up..

Actually, Chancy... It's 4 tools from the "BASIC 7"

Lucky 7 is a set of belt patterns. :)

Thanks for the trees.
A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

Ok I am in.
The kids, ahem, and certainly not me, love the Scooby Doo Wiki Tiki Mystery so mine will be something along those lines.
Not that I watch a lot of cartoons or anything :)

Yeah, well coin purse.. It's based on an idea from an idea.. I couldn't find a pattern for the cutting so I made my own up.. Hmm, looking at video again, maybe I should have allowed a bit more for the outside folds..

Tiki Steam Punk??? That is a strange combo for sure! hahaha It is tiki on the inside but on the outside it is all hardcore steam punk...

Other way around.. I'd decided on the steam punk idea for this before I started in leathercraft, it's what my very first coaster was a practice run for. The bottom of the press studs will be the axles for the cogs :)

I wasn't entirely sure what to put on outside.. I kinda played with the idea of the outside of the machine, but it didn't feel right.. When I saw the challenge, I thought it was perfect for the outside to give a cool looking purse with the hidden steampunk detail..

I'll have to use v gouge, hole punch and stud setter to finish it.. Are assembly tools freebies in cases like this or should I put those stages in another thread?

Absolutely NOT... you want a hole... chew through it with your teeth. You want a gouge.... draw a line and bevel it deeply.


LOL just kidding... that is up to Chancy. I would think that is beyond the 4 tool allowance, plus the freebies.
