Capri Sun - The Summer Project!

Wow People, can you believe May is coming to an end!  I have been so busy with getting the house in summer mode that it seems crafting has taken a back seat.  BUT NO! because while I was spring cleaning and getting all the outside goodies going things were growing in the craft room.  Yes it's true, I said to the little one (fave and only grandchild) "you should save all those Capri Sun juice pouches you drink, maybe we could make something out of them".  Yeah well, can someone explain this?  Had I said "maybe you should turn your socks right side out before putting them in the hamper"  Yeah, you know I would get no response, but ask for Capri Sun pouches?  WOW, you should see the response.  I'm pretty sure she would mug someone in the streets to secure what is now a precious commodity.  All kidding aside,  the summer project for 2010 will be a Capri Sun juice pouch tote bag.  It's perfect.  I was looking for something that Rory (fave and only grandchild) could work along with me on.  Then in my own head I started thinking about that plastic craft lace.  You know like 2 or so posts ago.  I was going to teach her a  spiral lanyard stitch, make a key chain, and call it a summer.  But then it hit me, Plastic lace, Capri Sun pouch! Well that's just a marriage made in heaven.  Now I know these tote bags and purses have been around for like 10 years or so.  I have done my best not to look for a pattern or any other info online.  I do know that people have been sewing these pouches together to create great little crafty goodies like purses and pencil cases etc.  So my goal along with the fave Rory is to make something fun and colorful. So check back to see what we have made. Thanks for visiting!
