So it's nothing we've never seen before on this board, but it was my first attempt at this form, and it was a rousing success!  Easy to sew the pouches using the Teflon presser foot, and finally a use for the pouches I've been hoarding for years!




My friend loved it!

Oh those are so much fun to make and everyone always loves them. I did a giant one a while back for my sister (I think it was 6x6 pouches at least on the front) and I have a stash of little (2 pouch front) ones for presents for the little girls I know, they think they're so funny.

So I have a question - how do you clean out the pouches so they don't have icky sticky residue in them?

I did nt use the straw hole at all. I sliced into the bottom gusset to keep them pouch intact. It's trickier to pour out the juice, though! To get rid of juice sticky residue, slice open and remove the bottom gusset completely and rinse by hand or toss in the dishwasher.

You clean them the same way even if you use the straw, the straw hole isn't even noticable after its flattened out and sewn together. I always rinse mine in soapy bleach water, since the kids drink them first, god only knows what kind of germs they've got lol.

And then a quick way to dry them if you don't have time to hang them outside or its nasty out, you can just throw them in the dryer on low and they're all nice and dry in about 15 mins, just make sure they're open/puffed out and not closed flat when you throw them in.

The next time we get Capri Suns (Currently just filling up reusable bottles for the kids' lunches), I will have to try to save tehm out and make something.

I clean mine my by first using Goo Gone to remove the glue from the straw on the front.  Then I cut out the bottom gusset and clean it in hot, soapy water with a baby bottle brush, rinse it in hot water and set to dry on my counter overnight.  I make sure that all the water in dried out before storing them.
