Those are so cool! I don't drink CapriSun, we usually buy juice in boxes... but hey, it's never too late to start!

These are very well made! You've really upcycled these juice packs! Great way to craft something useful out of something that would've ended up in a landfill somewhere.  Wink

riverwatson - I don't usually drink this stuff either. Pepsi-holic here. I didn't know about the clear packs. Gonna check these out next trip.

I love making things out of capri sun pouches.  So far I've made a small bag, many wallets, and a messenger bag.  I love all the different colors that your's are.  It was funny because I just got back from a camp where the lunches are donated, and pretty much every lunch has capri sun in it.  I think I got a little more than a hundred pouches with the hole in the bottom, and brought about 80 home.  Good luck on the rest of your bags, the look great!

Also- how do you wash these out? do you cut out the bottoms? did I miss something?

And I love the clear-backed kool-aid jammers. I wonder if you could do something with that... sew fake flowers or pretty paper or pictures inside? I dunno!

i cut holes in the bottom of mine, and then they don't show when i sew them. and u could definately put flowers or papers in the kool aid jammers. i hadn't thought of that, so i just have riddles on the inside of mine!

thanks to all for the nice comments! i've overcome my posting fear! i'm so happy i could inspire other crafters!

I find that crafts are very good time wasters. If they aren't for you, then you are one of those rare individuals who know what you're doing!

Dont you just love CapriSun? I make caprisun bags with duct tape on the backs to hold them together. It also serves as a pretty colored lining. I'm just starting to sell mine. Smiley
