To make this purse, I used Hershey bar wrappers and duct tape. I did use some dectorative paper inside to make the pockets a little showy. It was fun and all the kids ask me where I got it and it is very durable.

Approximate Time: 3 hours

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. I layed the pattern I wanted size wise and put it on a piece of clear contact paper on my glass table. I only uncovered an inch or so on the top and bottom and folded back the paper and stuck it on my table.

  2. Then put stripes of duct tape down on the contact paper so you can lay the Hershey wrappers on top of the sticky duct tape in stripes. Cover the surface you want for the outside of your purse or whatever you are making.

  3. Put it upside down and then double tape the other side again to make it stronger.

  4. Do the same for your dividers that you want and the pockets you want.

  5. Tape them all in with your duct tape.

  6. Take a strong ribbon, preferably ribbed, as it is stronger and make it the length you want for the handle.

  7. Slit holes in the side and run the ribbon up through and over the whole bottom and sew ends together. I used dental floss for sewing to make it stronger.

  8. Tape it all together and make your purse or gift whatever you want it to be. I decorated mine with pretty buttons.

  9. Go shopping. Enjoy!

These look really nice. It's a good use for old tops.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Turn your shirt inside out, iron all creases out if any.

  2. Then cover every inch of fabric with duct tape. Be sure there is no wrinkles. Do both sides of shirt.

  3. When done cut off excess duct tape around the edges.

  4. Then about an inch from the bottom of your shirt staple all the way across from end to end.

  5. Then cover the staples with more duct tape to avoid poking your fingers.

  6. Then turn the bag inside out again this will be the outside of your bag or purse. You can add extras to decorate it or just leave it the way it is.

What a great no sew project, for those who don't. Might work for those sewers, like me, who want an easy liner for a sewn purse. Just don't sew the duck tape. What a night mare to clean up the sewing machine and possibly break it. Make a smaller purse with duct tape and pop it in the purse.

My daughter and I have gone a little crazy over duct tape :) This is a purse and clutch we made out of some, and the best part is that if one rips I can patch it up and make it look even more original!
