I've been needing a purse/bag for myself for a while, so I decided to make a duct tape bag out of some rolls I had leftover from an earlier project.  So here's my take on the duct tape bag.  I got the picture idea from someone else's duct tape bag on here, and figured out how to get a successful stencil by someone's stencil tutorial.  The person on the front is Skip James, one of my favorite Blues artists.

The strap- I just wanted to show off my (not really) handiwork.

The inside- I did a really sloppy job, the straps are stappled and the velcro was put in sloppily, but oh well.   Tongue

And here's the full pic.


Tell me what you think.  : )

okay okay I have to say I absolutely HATE duct tape...just something about it. But I absolutely adore that you didn't limit yourself to just making patterns with the tape like everyone else and you actually made a picture with it. This duct tape bag is definetly the only one I like so far...props.

Yeah, to tell the truth, I don't like it much either.  It just looks very grungy or something- I just don't really like the look of it.  But it's so easy and it's pretty hard to resist (added that I'm terrible at sewing), so I gave in to this project and was pretty pleased with the result.  : ) I am flattered by your compliment.  Thank you.
