Capri Sun Shopper – Juice pouch upcycle
Meet the latest addition to the Capri Sun Upcycle family…
… the large shopper tote!
This beauty uses 27 recycled juice pouches in its construction and I designed it to carry the heavy shopping in the War on Plastic Bags!
I made the straps from red webbing strap of a thicker, more durable variety than the smaller lunchbag totes and stitched two lengths together before attaching to the inside and outside of the bag for extra strength. The “leather effect” finish on the ends of the straps are actually brown electrical tape, squirrelled from the Shabby garage 😉
I’m really pleased with the result. This one is not going in my Etsy shop (at least for now!) as I am doing my first “proper” craft fair at the end of this month. If you’re in the Camberley area, do pop along to Market Mall in High Cross Church on 28th March and say hello!
Back to making now – next up will be a smaller Capri Sun shoulder bag! See you soon x
