I made this purse last year after seeing all the kool-aid pouch purses. I just used the plastic sheets that people use to keep baseball cards in notebooks. I didn't think that alone would be strong enough so I also used blue vinyl placemats to back it. I cut out all of the peices then sewed it all to gether with bright red yarn. I just made the handle out of left over placemat. I did mine with the openings of the pouches facing out so that I could change the cards or even use photos. But it could have been done the other way so that the cards would stay better. comments welcome Grin

i love this twist on the ol' juicebox bags!!!!!! its really original and the red yarn is an excellent touch. You say you made it a year ago.... so it really has turned out to be resilient (sp?), the placemats reinforcement must've been a good move!

That's very cute...not to go all capitalist on you but I bet you could sell a few of those.  My grandparents used to collect baseball cards BIG TIME and while many were valuable, many were not and would be perfect candidates for a purse as it seems you already know Wink ...and maybe you could even make it interchangeable, people could put their favorite players in...take them out, switch them around...neat idea!  The plastic sheets and the card shape really lend themselves well to this...since thplastic sheets bend along edges already right?  Cool!

Oh, awesome!  I just bought baseball cards for the first time in ages (I was at a particularly boring Dodgers-Rockies game, so I spent an inning browsing the stadium store) and I have some really funny ones that I wanted to use in a craft somehow.  This is perfect!  Great purse!

ATCs would be awesome.  You could also make a geek purse and put in Magic cards or Pokemon cards.

  I had to re-sew the handles on once but that was just because I didn't do that great of a job the first time, other than that it has held up pretty well

Perfect! I've been looking for a sturdy, waterproof and reclaimable way to make cards into a purse without actually laminating them. Thanks so much for the idea.
