    OK...duct tape "fabric" is a piece of duct tape that has more duct tape stuck to the other side. The back piece is put on the opossite way so that the sticky sides are stuck together. This forms a piece of "fabric" with color on both sides. In this way you can work with it just like any other fabric. You can use any size duct tape to make the "fabric", whatever your craft calls for.

  • giannad13 about 38 months ago
    It's a super cute summer craft, but not for a beginner. the instructions aren't very thorough, and are difficult to understand. it would be alot better if there was a video, or pictures to go along with the directions. If you are a beginner, i suggest you get more experience before attempting this project.

  • Nerdygirl98 about 38 months ago
    I agree with Dontyougetit

  • Ducktapefan13<3 about 38 months ago
    I love this but i didn't get the directions:( so im off to the store to get the tape and im going to make one with my own directions!!!

  • Nerdygirl98 about 38 months ago
    It looks easy but the instructions, not so much.

  • dontyougetit about 38 months ago
    i like the idea but its kinda strange to carry around a fruit bag

  • Shayshaypink about 38 months ago
    Any suggestions on how to get a perfect circle? Thanks!

  • ducttapecupcake about 38 months ago
    OMG that is so cute!!! I will so make one in the pink and green!!! :)

  • sepb about 38 months ago
    Sure this bag is cute, but I literally just made this bag and it is pretty difficult for a beginner craft. First of all, most of the steps were very hard for me to understand, and I'm 13. When whatever it sounded like for example when it said for you to cut a half-circle in the edge of your bag, in the picture it didn't look like a half-circle had been cut into it. It took me longer than 45 minutes, more like two hours, to do this craft. I ended up making another pocket because that skinny one is just too little for me to hold anything. Overall, CUTE BUT DIFFICULT!

  • QUACKYCHICK about 38 months ago
    I <3 it I might make one for school

  • QUACKYCHICK about 38 months ago

  • Tom about 55 months ago
    The white/red one is an apple and the pink/green one is a watermelon.

  • kaitlin about 55 months ago
    Cute idea. I'm not sure why you need to cover a lot of the purse in red just to cut it off again; wouldn't it be easier just to trim the edges in red? Very clear instructions. I'm just not sure what fruit has red skin and a white inside??

  • phoenixgrace2 about 55 months ago
    your idea seems great, and cool, but I think you need a bigger shoulder strap
