Duct Tape Purses

My Sister-in-law and Mother-in-law have been busy crafting lately. This weekend they showed me, and allowed me to help with one of their projects!!

 

 

Aren’t they so cute? They are amazingly easy to make too!

 

Step 1: Create Duct Tape Fabric

You do this by putting duct tape back to back. In this instance we chose the pink polka dots and a solid blue duct tape. The blue duct tape was actual duct tape sheets they had purchased at Michaels.

 

 

After creating duct tape fabric for the front and back of the purse, we put strips together to form the binding. For this we chose pink polka dots on one side and a cupcake pattern for the other side.

 

 

 

Step 2: Tape the pieces together and add binding

After we had all the pieces made, we lined them up like this and started taping them together, using the cupcake patterned duct tape for our binding:

 

 

Step 3: Make the ruffles

We used a box to help hold the form, as we were bending it around. (Sorry I don’t have any pictures of the rest of the process!!) Velcro secured the top flap over the purse.

 

 

I didn’t take any pictures of us making the ruffles, but here’s a pretty good video tutorial.
