Hey all, thought I’d post the outer template for a leather coaster I made this afternoon…Adding it as a .zip because it’s teeeeeeeeeny tiny if I direct drop the SVG. (Tried to post earlier and somehow ended up deleting my whole thread, so here we go again)

I used the stitch hole from this post
and duplicated it along a path in Inkscape.
Then etched my center logo, cut the holes, then cut the main shape. I used Thick Leather, after laserin’, I dipped the whole thing in a solution of white vinegar with dissolved steel wool to make the leather black.
Then I threw a saddle stitch around the outer edge for decoration…if I were doing that part again, I’d probably go with a gray instead of matching black. But I think it turned out pretty nice…here’s the regression photo…Top left is the final coaster, top right is right after rinsing the vinegar, bottom left is right after the dip, and lower right was fresh off the laser.
