This is a really great D.I.Y Christmas gift idea! The PET Bottle Purse can fill many everyday needs and consists of PET bottle cut-offs and a zipper…The product was designed by Zitta Schnitt back in 2004. Her website features a great D.I.Y step-by-step tutorial (available for download – here), guiding illustrations from her tutorial is featured below. Zitta promotes Open Source design, and we are grateful – I suggest you check out the Pet Bottle Purse Facebook Fan Page and give her your ”Like”!


First, cut off the bottoms of the bottles approximate, afterwards cut off the excess material, along the burr with the small sissor.

Step 2

Cut out the auxiliary construction and stick it to the edge of the cut-out bottom with adhesive tape.

Step 3

Use the thick needle to pierce the bottom, where the auxiliary construction marks the stitching-holes with dots. For holding the needle us a combination pliers.

Step 4

Remove auxiliary construction.

Step 5

Before sewing, open the zipper. Start to stich * with the small needle, 3cm after the zipp-start and sew the zipper all around the first bottom.

Step 6

Attention! Don‘t complete sewing the whole circumference, before finishing, overlap the zipp-fabric end, thats how you build a nice PET!

Good Luck Hacking!
