I created this purse a few months back for fun. i got my idea in the hardware store where i also collected all my materials.. i made it out of flagging tape which is normally used on construction sites to mark where something important is or should got (like a pipe). i knit this on US size 15 needles.
oh and i decided to call it hardware bonanza because it is made up of hardware parts and things of that sort.


now if you ever find the need to knit flagging tape i have one word of caution..it kind of smells funny and after a while of knitting on it i would start getting a head ache and stop...just so you know...

I hope you all like my purse
thanks for looking

I just realized that it was entered. I thought I was still on the knitting board. I'm such a dork. Awesome idea. I love that it's bright orange.

it's all industrial like with chain and the tape.  I like how it's all themed together.  Makes the project even more awesome

I think this is just so cool.  You could probably fetch a pretty penny for them.  Well done!

And look at all the kinds of flagging tape you can get:

You could make a new color/pattern for every day of the month!

i was definitely going to enter something made of flagging tape. i just couldn't decide what to make and ended up just starting a whole bunch of stuff then taking it apart...but i'm kinda glad i didn't enter because then mine might have just been seen as "the lesser flagging tape bag" or something like that lol

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,

I entirely agree.  I just like to go the stores and look at all the nifty stuff.  I LOVE the plastic tubing for plumbing.

The color is fabulous. I would wear it to a club any time.  I love the industrial chic look and as soon as I learn to crochet I'm making a hobo bag out of some tape.
