Duct Tape Messenger Bag/Purse

Once I finished my Duct Tape Yoga Bag, I dove right into my next project, a duct tape messenger bag. I absolutely love making things, and duct tape is a wonderful medium. I quite enjoy working with it. Not to mention, I really want a new bag for the summer. So I picked up my Duck Brand duct tape, and went to town. A quick sketch, a few measurements, and I was all ready to begin.

Duct Tape Yoga Bag

Hello, and welcome to my very first post on the Creatization blog. For my very first foray into crafting with duct tape, I decided to make a bag for my yoga mat. Now, I've not actually done yoga before, but it's something that I've always wanted to try, and since I've found a great place near my house, I though, what best to motivate me than making a bag? I searched for several no-sew ideas, before coming to the conclusion that duct tape would be perfection. Staring at the selection at my local store, debating the colors, I decided the Genderqueer flag would be perfect. So that would be green, white, and purple as the main colors.

I started out making the duct tape fabric.
