How to make a duct tape bag:

All of the links lead to images that help make the instructions cleaer.

[link]

Take a piece of duct tape and make it double sided. The double sided piece should be 3x the length of what you want you bag's length to be.

[link]

Think of the piece of duct tape being in thirds. D is the name for the piece on the left, E is the name for the middle part and the part on the right is F. Fold F over E then fold D over that.

[link]

Repeat. The number of times you repeat varies with how wide you want the bag to be. In this example I repeated 4 times.

[link]

Make creases where the folds are then unfold. Tape the pieces of duct tape together as shown.

[link]

Then do the same on the other side

[link]

Make a double sided piece of duct tape that's the length that you want the strap of the bag to be. Connect it as shown in the above picture

[link]

Connect the other side as shown in the picture above and the end of the duct tape pieces, as shown in the picture below.

[link]

[link]

Put pieces of duct tape on the sides as shown.

[link]

Fold the duct tape over carefuly to make sure that it sticks properly, then put tape on the outside parts of the connections for the strap. and ta da! you've make a duct tape bag!

I'm not the best at writing instructions, so if there's a part that's unclear about them, please tell me so I can fix it.

This is so old. No way I'll be making an changes to it at this point. Can't be bothered. It was originally formatted for as blog entry that's why it's a bit awkward here.

This is such a great idea! The end product looks really professional, have you considered making and selling these? You could paint them and do interesting things with them... So many possibilities...

there are too many people out there already selling similar products so it's not worth the trouble of breaking into a market with an idea that has been done already.

And the great thing is, if it breaks, you can duct tape it. All you ever need to make things work is duct tape and wd40.

On a side note, someone I know made a suit of duct-tape. I imagine it was uncomfortable, but it was wicked. :)

it definitalyl is. Just use the same sort of technique with the duct tape here that creates the sheep of tape. Then get a hat pattern and cut pieces and then use tape instead of stitches

I used to have a friend who used duct tape in a very similar way. He would buy a backpack and tape it up. Your idea of making a bag entirely of duct tape, though, is definitely something I will have to pass on to him!
