I have been loving this pattern for the Evelyn bag by ChrisWDesigns.  As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to make a version of it in duct tape - perfect for the rainy season when any purse I use gets wet while biking in the rain.  I left off some of the pockets (like the elastic ones on the sides) because they wouldn't do well in the rain.  There is a zippered pocket on the back of the purse, and it closes with a magnetic snap.  I tried to use the black tape to put some details on the flap (a simple line and a bow), but the dark tape did not want to be photographed.

WOW! Shocked Would've NEVER guessed this was made from duct tape. It looks amazing! I love the contrasting color of the zipper, and over all the design in great. WTG!

This looks really professional! I worked with duck tape once, but never again. I had too much trouble, so I'm in awe of your skills!  Grin

What a pretty bag! I'm jealous of that duct tape. And that's a great way to use it. Want! Did you reinforce the sides of the bag with something, or is it duct tape on duct tape only?
