How to Make a Duct Tape Makeup Pouch with Zipper | Sophie’s World


Hi I’m Sophie and welcome to my world
you know a lot of people send me requests for making different things one
of the requests that I recently received was can you make me a makeup kit bag
with a zipper and so I’ve created a duct-tape makeup bag with a zipper and
I’m going to show you how to make it so first thing you’re going to need is
you’re going to need a zipper that’s very important you can usually get these
at craft or fabric stores you’re going to need a zipper you’re going to need
some scissors and you’re going to need some duct tape really that’s all you
need so you’ll notice that a scissor excuse me I scissor a zipper has two
sides one side that has the little teeth and the other side that is actually
closed and that side here you can see has the little pulley thing so I’m going
to turn this upside down so that the pulley thing is on the bottom now what
I’m going to do is I’m going to take my tape and I am going to measure enough to
go from one side to the other side as you can see here a zipper has like these
little ends on either side that’s so you can sew it into an article of clothing
but we’re going to be needing that too so we’re going to make sure that we go
all the way from this end to this end we want to go the full gamut of our zipper
so I’m going to take my piece of duct tape measure it if it’s a little bit
longer that’s okay in fact it’s better to go longer than shorter so what I’m
going to do is I’m going to take my duct tape I’m going to try to get as close to
the zipper line as possible I don’t want to go into the zipper line but I clothes
underneath it as I possibly can get so here we go I’m going to get it right
underneath there without going over you want to make sure that you don’t get the
little zipper head caught in there I’m sure there’s a technical term for that
but i’m not sure what it is so I’m just going to call it a zipper head now I’m
going to flip it over and I’m going to do the same thing on this side now one
thing you want to make sure is that you don’t get the little the little tongue
caught don’t get that little zipper pull caught so I’m going
push that up here make sure that doesn’t get caught and then I’m going to do the
same thing and make sure it’s really important that you don’t go over the
zipper line see that’s the zipper line there you don’t want to go over it you
want to stay just under it because your zipper is going to need to slide along
those teeth otherwise it won’t work so there you have it I have sealed in my
zipper on one side now you want to do the same thing on the other side I’ve
already done that jump ahead here so as you can see I did the same thing on the
opposite side so now i have two sides of my zipper covered and now what I’m going
to do is I’m just going to make my basic duct tape fabric I’m just going to do it
like this i’m going to take my strips and i’m going to make mine about six
inches long which means that i’m going to use three strips of tape and i lay
them down and also i always do with my duct tape fabric I always make sure that
I overlap my fabric that’s half an inch there we go now i’m going to pick it up
turn it over now i am one of those people that likes to make sure that my
duct tape is really really strong so i’m going to come back in the opposite
direction on this way they’re going up and down I’m going to come back to make
my fabric super strong by coming side to side with my strips what this means is
I’m going to probably need about four whoops four or five strips now I’m going
to hang on to this extra little piece even though that ripped sometimes they
it does that I’m just going to hang on to that because i will use that okay I’m
just going to take this and I’m going to lay it flat like that then this piece is
a little long but that’s okay I’m going to trim it later on it doesn’t matter
sometimes they make them too long sometimes I make them too short you know
that’s just the way it is okay that piece was nice and perfect and I’m going
to go all the way down making my duct tape fabric so that I end up with a
piece of duct tape fabric now see here i made that short and
remember i had that little extra piece look at that how perfect is that doesn’t
get much better than that okay and then one more piece here now don’t worry that
it’s raggedy and jaggedy you’re going to come back and trim ok so now you can see
I’ve got a piece of duct tape fabric cut a zipper and I’ve got the other side now
I’m going to do exactly the same thing that I did on this side on the other
side I’m going to jump ahead again and as you can see now I’ve got two pieces
of duct tape fabric that are attached to my zipper ok now what I’m going to do is
I’m going to make sure that I fold my bag so that the little pull is facing
out and now I’m going to trim I’ve got this extra here so all I’m going to do
is trim along the side just like that and I’m going to trim along the other
side just like that now the only thing that’s left to do to make my bag is to
seal it on either side so remember i said i’ll use that piece of tape well
guess what i’m going to use that piece of tape so i want to make sure that i’m
getting this edge here and see how there’s an opening up here can you see
that opening that’s from the end of the zipper and i want to make sure that I
seal that up so I’m going to place my tape over that side and i’ma flip it
over to make sure that I seal everything there and then I’m going to do the same
thing on this side and this side I’m going to use a full piece of tape going
to make sure that I’m not covering my zipper again remember there’s your
zipper you never want to cover the zipper but I’m going to go right up to
the edge of it flip it over seal it nice and good and then I’m going to seal the
bottom I’m just going to take my piece of tape
put along the bottom and seal it up now the only thing left to do here is to
trim any excess off I’m going to trim this little piece here now what’s left
to do is to make this fabulous and embellish it now I’m not going to take
the time to embellish it right now I’m going to leave that creativity up to you
but as you can see once you’ve trimmed this you can go to town decorating it
any way you want you can put stripes on it strips on it you can put your name on
it or as we’ve done here I’ve got an eyeball on hits if you’re going to do
something like this what you’re going to want to do is take your duct tape put it
on a piece of parchment paper put a piece of tape on parchment paper you can
cut it to any shape you want peel it off just like a sticker and place it right
on your bag so here you can see there’s the zipper it opens right on up and
you’ve got yourself a makeup case now you can go to town for more fun ideas
