What was your inspiration?
My project, the Starma Bag. I wanted to make a basket, exploring the shape more, and putting the point at the top, as for a Christmas star. Still trying to work out how to make bones to hold it in shape.
What are you most proud of?
Using two stars as the basis for a 3-D project. There's some serious math in this design. I'm learning geometry even if I don't want to.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I wouldn't advice this project until I manage to find a way to make the basket support itself. The shape does not work as a bag.
Some project, while seeming an inspired idea, have serious drawbacks that set them on the back burner for years. This is one.
