What are you most proud of? The Alligator effect and the comments from my friend that I made it for

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch twice do once - but would recommend the class and project to everyone, I am only a hobby cake maker for friends and family but this takes pride and place on my photo list

You did a great job. How long did it take?

From memory I calculated about 12 - 16 hours in total, you get a bit carried away when you see it coming together made the buckles and rivets first, letting these dry hard

I did make the side buckles for the handbag within Elisa Video, - however; I misjudged the sizes a bit "big" and decided to leave them off - lesson learnt.

Elisa, all credit is down to you - great class - extremely good class - may be a dog next but may be a bit ambitious for an amateur like myself, you the real person or the artist secretary - if the real person I am SO pleased with comment
