I will try to explain it the best way that I can. First slit the bottom of your juice pouches and rinse out with warm soapy water. You can let dry overnight or use a paper towel and dry them by hand. Now, take 2 pouches and sew them together side by side overlapping the edges.  Do that again with 2 more pouches. Now, take 1 by itself and place it backside to backside of one of the 2 panels and stitch up the side starting from the top going down leaving about a 1/2 inch un-sewn at the bottom. This should now look like a corner, not overlapped like the 2 that is a panel for the front and back of the purse. Now connect the rest of them together adding another single side panel. You now have 6 pouches sewn together, 2 in front, 2 in back and 1 on each side. Now, you will have to measure carefully and get 2 more pouches and figure out how wide your bottom is now that you have the top sewn. Make sure to leave enough to sew and don't just set the purse on the pouch and cut that way, the bottom will be sewn like the corners so  you will need a tad extra. Once you have cut the 2 pouches almost in half but to equal the bottom width sew them together in the middle overlapping them but make sure you over lap enough but have enought to go to the ends for sewing to the purse.  Now, this is the tricky part. Start with a long side and place bad side to bad side and make flat and sew all around the purse. It will sorta pucker out b/c you are sewing on it making it flat. But, remember when I said not to go all the way down the sides when sewing, this allows for  you to be able to fold up the bottom of the pouches to sew onto the bottom panel. Now for handles I went to Walmart and bought nylon belt type material in the fabric dept. if they are out, you can go to the automotive dept and buy a strapping belt made of the same stuff and I think it is actually cheaper too. Now, I duct taped it down on the inside of the purse once I figured out the length and then stitched it down at the top. I made a lining for mine that hid the duct tape and all. But there is no way I can explain how I did that, way to complicated.  I hope I did not lose  you anywhere and that helps you.  Oh also, on the bottom I sewed them lengthwise sewing them overlapped bottom to bottom instead sewing them side by side.

hope that helps

I used duct tape for mine. Where she said to sew, I stapled and made sure to cover it with tape. I don't want anyone getting hurt. Here's how they turned out:

Dear Lique,

   I just found your site through the HGTV message board.  I would love to make one of the Kool aid jammer coin purses, but I need visuals to understand things.  The picures will not come up on on my computer.  I've double clicked on the X where the pictures are suppose to be, and also right clicked and clicked on show pictures, but nothing happens.  Everyone else seems to have brought up your pictures, why can't I?  What am I doing wrong?

 Thanks for your help,  27crafty2
