The Cool New DIY Duct Tape Purse Book + Duct Tape Pencil Bag Tutorial
*I was given a copy of the new book in hopes that I would write an unbiased post about it. I received no monetary compensation.*
Duct tape. The fixer of all. If you can’t fix it with duct tape, it probably shouldn’t be fixed. But duct tape can do so much more than just fix things. Did you know that you can create stuff with it?
I’ve always been interested in the whole ‘duct tape craft’ type thing. I actually thought about entering the duct tape scholarship when I was in high school, but you had to make a full dress and tux out of duct tape! That is a lot of money, plus I wanted to wear a princess dress.
If you don’t feel like making an outfit out of duct tape, what about a bag? I recently found out about a new this cool new book: Duct Tape Bags: 40 Projects for Totes, Clutches, Messenger Bags, and Bowlers. This book comes from Richela Fabian Morgan, who has also written Tape It & Make It, Tape It & Make More and Tape It & Wear It. She is THE go-to person when it comes to making stuff with duct tape.
I got permission to republish one of her cool tutorials – a pencil bag! It is perfect for school or perfect for people like me who have a stupid obsession with little bags.
To make any of the bags, you need to make ‘fabric.’ The directions are below.
The pencil case only has six steps! How easy is that? Plus you will have a much more unique and cooler pencil bag than anyone else.
The new book has 40 different bag tutorials in it. These are just a few of my favorite:
There are SO many types of duct tape out there too. You legit can get duct tape for your new bag in pretty much every color, style, or character. I couldn’t just pick one or two cool duct tapes you show you, so you get nine to look at. I’m loving the Paris, Scottie Dogs, and Campers. Ok, actually I love all of them.
You can pick up this new book on Amazon for under $12! Make sure to check it out.
Have you made anything from duct tape?
