Thanks to Scoochmaroo over at Instructables http://www.instructables.com/id/Duct-Tape-No-Sew-Tote/ I was able to make this fabulous tote bag.

I picked out this great fabric this morning and found a matching duct tape to line it with.

Here is my action shot. It holds perfectly my water bottle, book, wallet, cellphone and keys. I think it would also be great as a lunch bag.

I don't want to sound like a Hilton but that is a hot bag.

Thanks everyone! I made a second one yesterday of this flannel skull fabric I had lying around. I lined it with shiny silver duct tape and made a zippered pouch from another of scoochmaroo's tutorials. Good things all around!

That is so cool! I can't believe there isn't any sewing required. I will definitely have to check out that pattern. The fabric you chose is great.

This is pretty and interesting.  does it hold together really well.  I am interested in making something like this since I do not have a sewing machine yet
