Happy DIY Day! With summer on the horizon, I decided it was time to whip up a new bag.
I used a reusable grocery tote as the base for the bag. I wanted it to be pretty big because summer calls for toting around my camera, snacks, sunscreen, a paperback, and a bunch of other necessities that seem to multiply in the bottom of the bag. I kept the basic bag shape, but trimmed down and rounded the top edge.
Next, I just covered the whole bag in strips of duct tape.
I raided my fabric stash for some punchy stripes to add a little extra summer fun to the bag.
I sewed a simple pleat to go down the front and secured it with duct tape.
A little Velcro holds everything closed.
What’s your favorite use for duct tape?
