    DIY Tyvek Stuff Sacks Idea

    I picked up a couple FedEx envelopes (large and small sizes). They are made from Tyvek, and of course I had the idea to make a stuff sack from them.

    I just got them this morning. After getting home I did a quick search and found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyYuET-UOEk. Of course, it really is hard to have a truly original idea these days. I'm thinking I'll have a go at it with some adhesive or Tyvek tape instead of the needle & floss as in the video.

    I just thought I'd share the idea and collect other's thoughts.

    Aren't they already stuff sacks?

    That's one of my favorite sites BTW, but they phoned it in on this one. They could use some tape and make a cooler sack.

    If you want to make one to a specific size, a square bottom with a little more sewing...

    no, they're bounce bags
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    The admin assistant in our office who opens the mail is on standing orders to save used tyvek envelopes that come in. I've used them to make stuff sacks and I also made a nice set of mitten covers.
