Well first of all, a big thank you to Sage for suggesting this design.
Dylan Gelinas, who to me comes across a lot like Topher Grace in That 70’s Show, which is a compliment by the way, has a dog in a purse balloon design.
It is fabulous but to me did need some further girlification. I love the design but prefer to have the floppy ears as that makes it more clear it is a dog rather than cat and so added some and also how can a dog in a purse not have a bow?! Tis blasphemy I tells ya!
I also added a tongue and an extra single sausage twist for the bottom of purse. Other than that I followed faithfully.
I made those alterations as I feel it makes it more dog like and properly girly, lololololol. Bravo to Dylan though!
He is very likable and goes at a great pace for a learning audience. Great lighting and one can follow clearly.
Dylan, I give you two balloons up!
And may I just say that the fact that he kept popping the eyes in the instructional just increased his likability, when a person who is seen as competent makes a mistake and it makes that person more likable as a result, it is known as the Pratfall Effect.
I just wanted to point this out as people making instructional videos might be sensitive and self conscious how it comes across, but really if you are a competent designer and instructor, making mistakes and showing them just increases your likability and makes you more relatable.

Here is my version of his design.
