This is my first duct tape project. It took me about a total of 8 hours to make. I'm sure that once you get it down you can shave off some of that time.
Step 1: List of needed items
1 Tape measure
1 pair of scissors
1 stapler (with staples of course)
1 piece of fabric of choice (not shown here)
4 sets of 1" grommets and setting tool ( not shown in this picture)
3 rolls of DUCT TAPE of personal preference, I used white as my base, black as the main color with purple as my accent color. All rolls are 2" wide.
Step 2: Fabric of choice
Get some fabric that measures at least 13x26. This will be your lining. Fold in half, measure and then cut.
Step 3: Like they always say "measure twice and cut once"
This is a very simple shape....measured out to be 11" long from top to fold (open, this would be about 22" long), 12" wide on top, 8" wide at the base. The two side panels are 6" wide and about 12" long before piecing together.
Step 4: The base
Open your fabric and lay face side down. Cover your fabric completely in your base color. Remember to over lap by about 1/8" or so. This doesn't have to be perfect no one will see the base color.
Step 5: The base
Do this from end to end on your fully opened piece of fabric.
Step 6: Add the mail color
Simply tape over your base color with whatever color you have chosen your purse to be when finished.
Step 7: Trim of the excess
Trim all of the tape away using your fabric edge as a guide.
Step 8: More edging
I edged my pieces separately as I went along. A 2" strip layed across each piece and then folded under. Then when fisihed before the grommets are added Itook a long strip and edged all the way around for a more finished look.
Step 9: Accents?
If you are going to decorate your purse now is time to add them. Any type of embelishing that would be added such as flowers can be added later.
I cut these thin strips for a neater look as oppose to just ripping the tape.
