    what a brillient idea to reuse the waste bottle.imyself use these bottles for growing indoor plants, after cutting the upper part of the bottles by hot knief.Again i use them by pouring waste leftover hot candle wax, i insert a thred in between the bottle with wax, then iuse to cut the bottle with hot knief,this makes a beautiful candle of bottle shape.

    I *love* this! Not many ‘reuse’ projects have been very inspiring, but this is awesome!

    That is actually pretty clever. A little clunky but what woman’s purse isn’t I guess.

    If you could automate the zipper application this could go many places. Especially with multiple bottles. Great idea. Thanks for posting.

    I knit and crochet and I know many people who use cleaned soda bottles for yarn caddies. They cut off the top of a bottle, put a skein of yarn inside, run the yarn through the neck and put the top back on the bottom. The zipper addition would be a great idea for keeping the top and bottom together. I may make a few for friends.

    They smaller version would be great little keepers for needle arts supplies.

    I was wondering if, rather than sewing the zipper to the inside of the seam, if it could be cemented to the outside. Since most zippers have nylon fabric, I think a good cement for plastics should work.

    They would even be a neat way to store supplies in the trunk of the car since the bottle would take a good amount of banging around. Done with a separating zipper, the top could even be used as an emergency funnel.

    I reuse soda bottles for coffee/milk/sugar slushies in the summer time. Just leave some space to shake it as it thaws…it’s pretty fantastic.

    In the winter they are microwaveable for hot coffee..reuse each one 100 times or more.

      caution frozen plastic leaches toxins into our food and h2o in most cases as well as anything microwaved. may cause cancer.

    Cool! The first thing that comes to my mind is that this kind of purse would be perfect for keeping a fruit protected in your bag! I’ll have to make myself one.

    Congratulations!! Great Idea, my question is; How do I put the zipper in those Bottle Purses ? Thanks

  • green queen

    Lets get together with the states like Maine, Michigan etc. that charge a deposit on bottles and cans and turn them in for refunds (money 5- 10 cents per bottle). The returned items then get recycled. If all 50 states did that we would have less cluttered highways and people would want to recycle because it pay$. Also some of your local schools may collect the lids for fundraising for the entire school. As far as schools recycling related items lets get more involved with TerraCycle.net ‘s juice pouch program

      That would be a wonderful idea! How would I get that started in kentucky? Not only do we have to deal worth our own trash, new yorks trash gets sent here to our land fills as well. It won’t be long til this beautiful state will be all garbage.

    Great read seeing that I had been unsure what to do and just uncovered my own solution :-)

    Ok… this is cool… and I LOVE the simplicity of how it was made. Instead of going glue-crazy… it’s beautifully drilled & sewn together. Looks nice & clean!

    this is quite cool as a purse.
    Would I be able to use this purse idea as an example of an Upcycled product for my ICT GCSE course? It would not be published anywhere but would just be used in a project.
    Please let me know if this would be a problem.
    Thank you,

    great use of waste plastic material..

    Any other ideas on how to attach the zipper? I tried the hot glue way, but all it did was melt the plastic and caused the plastic edge to curl. Couldn’t get the zipper glued.
