I think you would be better off using permanent marker for your decorating. I worship Sharpies!

when I first saw this thread I found the idea very cool and try to find the product but it seems I couldnt find the right place to buy untill now.
last day when I am on my to my German class, I went to a "everything is 1 mio TL" shop (it is like your dollar stores) and found a cleaning sheet named "imported cleaning fabrics" and it was look a like tyvek.. i bought two package for only 2 mio TL (1 euro/1 dollar).. i never saw a tyvek product so i can only guess that this one is tyvek. it is white, it is more like paper and it cannot tear down so easily.. a real tyvek or not, i hope it will come out great when i make pouches from it cuz if you can make cleaning with it you can definetely sew it.. lol...

You are so lucky having Tyvek envelopes. They are not available here in Australia.  BOO HOO!!!!!!  
Would anyone like to send me some? I'll send back something in return.

Does anyone wanna send me some too? We can negotiate something... lol =)

This is a fun and easy project

The best part is that the Tyvek is free. All you have to buy is a zipper. I used one that I had around the house. Go to your local Post Office and get an Express envelope.

-Cut the envelope in half and use the side without the seam in the middle.

- Using an "L" square (for true, straight lines) measure the square to the desired size. Make sure to leave a 1/2 inch seam allowance beyond the end of the zipper.

-Trim down your rectangle

-Draw whatever your heart desires. Markers work best.

- Crumple your creation for a nice fabric like feel. Then smooth it out and prepare to sew.

-I like to sew the zipper to the top and bottom edges first and then sew the sides of the pouch shut. Simply line the zipper selvage with the edge of the tyvek and sew the zipper on. Repeat for the other side. If you don't want a raw edge, fold over the edge of the tyvek and sew it down on to the zipper, repeat for the other side of the pouch, then flip the pouch inside out and sew the sides shut. Be sure to leave the zipper open a little so you can turn the pouch right side out again.

-Voila! Tyvek pouch.

Hope you all enjoy this. This pouch is for my friend's Bday. It took me 20 minutes.

you can also just order them online for free! they come in packages of ten or more and even the shipping is free. i love that word, FREE! god bless america. (most of the time. jkjkjk)

If any Canadians are still looking for this stuff, drop me a line (atlascoughed AT sbcglobal DOT net) and I'll try an' help you out. Mebbe we can trade or something.

Anything I can reach I do myself.

Tyvek is also sold as house wrap - they use it to insulate under the shingles (I think).  I knew a guy who scavenged ends from construction projects (it comes in gigantic rolls) and made huge kites - like 9 foot wingspan.  These things would literally lift a small adult off the ground if not anchored well. 

So if you know anyone in construction, ask around - you may get more than you bargained for!
