What are you most proud of? I am most proud of finishing something that I've always wanted to make. Elisa's course took all the mystery out of "how do I do this?" and "how did she do that?" Thanks Elisa! You said you enjoyed teaching and it shows.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Allow more time than you think you need and make as much as you can ahead of time. I wanted to make a chain for the straps like the real purse but it was more involved than I thought so I ended up using a braided mold that I had. The client was super happy with the result so I guess that's what matters more :)

Is beautiful !! How did you make the Gucci logo ?

Thanks! For the lines of the logo I used the half round attachment on the extruder that Elisa showed us how to use in lesson 4. Then I just used the photo I had of the purse as a guide to make an outline. Glue it on with water. The hardest part was making sure that lines looked evenly rounded and the corners were sharp.
