Bucket Solar Light & Storage Container SUPER EASY
I think i might just do this now that i got a sewing machine. It'll allow me to cover my mower and go kart. Also think I will make my seat with a bag.
DIY Holiday Storage Container From Suitcases
Thank you for the instructable. I didn't think you could pull them apart at the glued "seam". Great tip. I had to make a quick waterproof shelter for some chickens once. I had been sewing bags on the sewing machine, but it was starting to rain and sleet and snow were due within hours. what I had used as rain shelter was not going to hold up to driving rain, sleet and snow. I had a jumbo dog crate for structure, but needed to cover it on the top and sides. I would normally have sewn something, but didn't have time. In haste, I used duct tape for the seams. It has held up through several years of Texas heat, cold, high winds, driving rain, snow, and humidity, with no leaks! If you wanted to waterproof a sewn feed bag tarp, you could easily cover the seams with duct tape.
It does look like a simple yet highly useful project indeed. I really like the feature of this light and storage container being non-appealing to flying bugs at night which I totally dread on every camping trip. Thanks for sharing and I will definitely share my masterpiece once ready.
Old suitcases which are damaged and cannot be used for travelling anymore can still be put to good use. At home, I use them for storage to store mainly Chinaware because of the sturdy exterior that can protect the fragile items inside.
Wow! I think the other material you would require to complete this project of yours is definitely some artistic drawing skills! I really admire those with talents who can easily create beautiful holiday storage containers from old suitcases that would have been otherwise been abandoned and look timeworn.
DIY Tarp Cover Made From Feed Sacks
Very nice, thanks!I was looking for an 'ible using sacks for recovering seats, since the cushions on the stools in my barn get trashed quickly if I use regular plastic. I was looking at the bags thinking "that material looks familiar". When I saw your project a light went on! I will try it out soon, because like you I like the thought of repurposing stuff that would go to the landfill, and we can never have enough tarps! Hopefully it will prove to be more durable as well.
