So, for clarity, we HAVE to have both a Tiki and some flowers of some sort at a minimum?

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

(I did think it a little unfair, has Mr chancey did a Tiki not so long ago) whistle.gif

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..

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 :)

Is that a wallet????? COOL SHAPE!

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...

You have my attention!

Or is that just basic design and you where showing different options?

I get that...and if your just being weird that is OK TO!!!!!!!!!

hahahaha lololol

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.

Yeah, we always post the carving or whatever at that stage as the contest submission then update with the finished results.

I have some ideas rolling through my head, but nothing I've settled on yet.

Got mine sorted. Thought I'd try and do something with this one. It's got all the needed bits in it.smile.gif

Looking at it though, there's a few things I think I'll change, we'll see.

I printed out my design and realized a few things did need changing.. I simplified the flower so I'd half a chance of getting a tool to it - I based it on a lliama (as used in leys) to match the theme. I also had to move the stud position, so I redid the cogs to make it more obvious they ran together across the panels and to leave space for personalization... So here's the new improved version.. Hopefully my leather will turn up before I change it again :)
