Duct Tape Bags: 40 Projects for Totes, Clutches, Messenger Bags, and Bowlers

We rated this book:


Duct tape wallets, duct tape suits, duct tape prom dresses… we’ve all seen internet postings about some of the creative ways people have forged unexpected items from that most reliable and versatile of materials. But did you ever imagine that you could craft purses, totes, and messenger bags from duct tape that would look more like works of art than workman’s equipment?

Richela Fabian Morgan is here to show you how to make it happen with Duct Tape Bags, a collection of her most eye-catching creations, showing off bag styles and techniques for all occasions. Not only does Morgan clearly know both her fashion styles and artistic influences, but she’s got creativity to burn.

A printing error on page 12 gets things off to a rocky start, but the overall professionalism and detail in the instructions that follow help carry you over that minor misstep. Perhaps the most amazing part of the collection is her thoroughly intricate and impressive flower work, which takes these creations from utilitarian to stylish in a snap.

This is DIY crafting done right.
