I finished my first juice pouch bags. I want to thank so many of you for your wonderful inspiration and tutorials.

Both bags, I used green quilt binding I had left over for the handles.

 Since this is a gift for a good friends daughter, I used some pink and blue trim I had in my drawer.

This was my first bag. I don't care for how the zig zag stitch turned out. But it gave me a good sense of the construction. I use it to hold the cleaned out bags I am waiting to stitch.

Bottom of the bag. I can't wait to try these again. I am working on making my son a lunch bag. Need a trip to the beach or park to drink more juice bags!

LMK what you think, and if you have other ideas for these. I have boys, so not much need for girly purses here.

These are so cool! What did you make the straps out of?

Thanks for sharing!

I used some kiwi green quilt binding that I had left over. I haven't tried making the handles out of the juice pouches yet. I was making a goal to use recycled or things I already owned and couldn't use on other projects!

that is so cool

how long did the first one you made take

I think it only took about 30 mins. not counting the cleaning and drying of the bags. I would totally recommend trying it. Just use a straight stitch not zig zag like I did! It didn't look straight or neat. There are good tutorials list on the main page of the purses, wallets and bags page. I hope you try it and post!

I really like the addition of the pom pom fringe; it kicks up the kitsch factor.

My friend made zippered pencil bags out of the juice pouches for her boys, maybe that's an idea for your guys.
