Using washed juice pouches, sew them all together and make a tote bag. The large ones are great for grocery shopping. Small ones are great for carrying as a purse.
Approximate Time: three to four hours for me
Cut top of pouches, wash in soapy water and rinse. Turn upside down on towel to drain and dry.
Sew pouches together: for large totes: four across and three down. Make two sides, and then two smaller strips for the sides.
Sew together all sides and add bias tape around top.
Sew two straps for handles.

Making crafts out of Capri Sun or KoolAid Jammer pouches can be a lot of fun. You can make cool and durable gifts. Below are instructions for making a checkbook cover that I made.
When making juice pouch wallets, you could also secure them by sewing on velcro as a closure. This would prevent your cards from randomly falling out of the wallet.

I am not sure which ones you already have, but here are some ideas, cut the pouches so they are flat, with hole punch punch holes in them, then crochette together to form hats. Brim you would have to cut into shape for of course. You can also make visers, and purses.
I need a pattern for a Capri Sun backpack.
