My BFF made a Capri Sun for me for my birthday  Grin  I love it, but my old cell phone case just wasn't cool enough for it, so I made a special one out of a raisin pouch.  Who knew garbage could be so fabulous?


Just cut your wrapper and sew it together like you would with fabric.  I connected an interlinked poptab chain onto some zipper pulls that I sewed in.  This lets me hang it around my various purse straps for quick access.  I learned how to make the chain some time ago in a Craftster thread here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17179.0


The other side, with snap on flap to keep my phone in. 

Top view, not the prettiest construction, but you can see the felt lining (glued in).  I ironed the wrapper with aluminum foil over it to make the creases on the flap sharper.  I also ironed over the top edges of the pouch after I folded them in and just whipstitched the top to make it a little more interesting.


The glorious marriage of Capri Sun purse and Raisin Phone Case, perhaps a little over the top, but very fun!

I LOVE it! I love the Raisin-Maid logo and have since I was a little girl. She is so pretty and wholesome!  Tongue  I totally forgot that they make plastic bags of dried fruit now; those are much easier to work with than the sticky cardboard from the boxes. I had a couple mini-boxes the other day trying to figure out something to make that would showcase the Raisin-Maid logo and it just wasn't happening.
