Capri Sun Purse

What You Need

  • 27 Capri Suns drink pouches
  • Sewing Machine

Disco Ball
1. Remove the excess liquid from the pouches. Get a dish towel and a rolling pin. Place the towel on a table and put the drink pouch on top of it. Roll the drink pouch flat like you would pizza dough. You need to drink and flatten out approximately 27 pouches.

2. Piece together the pattern of the purse. With a sewing machine, sew four pouches with the bottom of the pouch to the top of another pouch. This will be the bottom of the purse.

3. Sew three pouches together side by side. Repeat that step for the other side of the purse. The picture above used 3 by 3 pouches for the sides, but you can have virtually as many or as few as you want

4. Sew each side to the middle two pieces of the bottom.

5. Bend the end pieces of the bottom up to meet the sides of the purse. Sew the seams closed. This creates a box of Capri Sun.

6. Sew the last three remaining pouches together, just like the sides of the purse.

7. If you want, attach this new piece to a long side of the box you have already created. This creates a closing flap to the purse.

8. Use a ribbon or fabric to make a strap and put snaps on the flap to close the purse.
