Day 114: Guest Post – Bottle Purse

Andrea presents us a nice idea for a little storage box made from PET bottles. Zitta Schnitt, a young designer, shows us in a short illustrated instruction how to make them.

Andrea says: “What should we do with the tons of left over PET bottles from our everyday-life? Actually they are quite nice. Therefore I will show you what you can do with them. (Except from refilling them with other drinks.)

The Bottle Purse

For a very useful bottle purse you need:

2 identical PET-bottles
1 zipper
1 pair of scissors
1 needle
1 yarn

You have to cut off the bottom sides from the bottles pretty straight. If possible the bottom parts should have the same height, if you don’t suceed, it’s not such a big problem.

The more complicated part of the instruction follows now: You have to manage to sew each half of the zipper on each bottom part. With a little patience (and swearing) you will succeed either by sewing it by hand or with the sewingmachine. It should look like this, when you have finished.

Mount the zipper and close the purse. Everyone who sewed as agley as I did, could put a colourful tape on top of the seam. Ready is the bottle purse!

What you fill into the purse is up to you. From jewellery to money, from your sisters’ dental brace to a snackbox for your apple, you can put loads of different stuff.

…and if you have only a single bottle it works too!”
