Summary:

What if a designer handbag were as easy to craft as a duct tape wallet?

Now it is with this easy-to-follow guide to making 40 handbags so fashionable, you won’t actually believe they’re made of duct-tape. Part art-piece, part usable accessory, Richela Fabian Morgan shows how each of these gorgeous handbags can be recreated one manageable section at a time.

Designs include:
·         Clutches and wristlets
·         Hobo and Shoulder Bags
·         Satchels

With detailed step-by-step instructions and primers on duct tape “fabric,” different types of closures from magnet snaps to jeans buttons, and bag accessories like bows and luggage tags, Morgan catapults this trend from the streets into the stratosphere. A mix of pop art and urban style photos of each project and a cool vibe throughout will make you want to immediately roll up your sleeves and begin making duct tape bags.

My Thoughts:

Are you into DIY crafts? Duct Tape Bags is the perfect book if you are or know someone that is.

Duct Tape crafts are a great way to be creative and unique. You can use different designs/colors of duct tape to make things like wallets and now bags. I love purses and I also love to be unique.

This book gives you step by step directions on how to create beautiful bags with duct tape. The pictures in the book are bright and colorful as well.

This is a great book to have in your library or a gift for the DIY’er on your list this holiday season.
