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

Approximate Time: 1 hour



  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.
