Should I make the wallet?


For one of my projects in AVT 105, I made this “Chanel” purse out of can tabs. It took A LOT of work and patience to finish, but I’m very proud of the finished result. I’ve been contemplating making an accompanying wallet for it, so should I? I plan to use this as a portfolio piece in the future, but as a graphic designer I feel like maybe it doesn’t belong? I think it definitely showcases my attention to detail and my being a perfectionist, but does it work in a graphic design portfolio setting?  I guess that’s why I’ve been putting off the wallet for so long. I just don’t want to waste my time making one and not be able to use it as a sample of my work in the future. I know some portfolios aren’t just the graphic design pieces, they also show drawings, paintings, or other work by the candidate, but again, is this even something I can include in my own portfolio? Any feedback would be helpful!!
