The New Capri Sun Bag

The Capri Sun (or Kool Aid) bags are so cute, but to be honest, the pouches are a pain in the *** to sew with! They are thick, slick, and don't ease at all like regular fabric does.

So I have been playing around for some time now, to develop a user friendly way to sew with these little guys, and I think I've got it! Here is the new version of my Capri Sun bag, using oil cloth as the top, handles and bottom. I like the oil cloth because it is easier to sew on, and I can make matching handles. It has the same bright and fun colors that the pouches come in, and it is waterproof and easy to wipe down with a damp cloth.


This size works great for a lunch bag or medium size purse. I am going to make some bigger ones with more pouches for a larger purse.

Very cute and clever solution.

They look like they might make good insulated bags for your refrigerator items when you go food shopping. I always bring my own bags. Good for the environment and they give a $.05 discount for every bag I bring.
