Upcycled Tyvek priority mailing envelopes make great clutch purses! Tyvek the fabric of the future circa 1980…waterproof and durable! This is a great way to re-use shipping materials for stylish accessories.
This was my first time working with purse frames and while frustrating at points it wasn’t that bad in the end. I ended up with a few minor dents on the frame and a lot of super glue on my fingers but it holds together well . The Tyvek due to it’s stiffness was sometimes difficult to work with. Tyvek is not only stiff but also really thin so I had to stabilize it with fusible interfacing and cotton batting. I really enjoyed this project because I got to use boring everyday items in new ways.
