CapriSun Bag Tutorial!

Have you ever seen these things and thought...I wanna make one!



So I finally did, and let me tell you, the KIDS sure had fun drinking the CAPRISUNS to make the quota for the bag!! :)


Step #1 - Stitch (I zig-zagged) a few pouches together, down the sides.


I actually made 2 rows of 3 for each side and 1 for the bottom.


Step #2 - Stitch 2 on top of each other for the sides. (You'll need 2 of these)


Step #3 - Stitch down the sides, with both edges facing out for the side edge.


Step #4 - It will look similar to this.


Step #5 - Stitch the Bottom piece onto the bag.
Line up the edges on one side and stitch.
Stitch along the side edges.
Stitch along the other bottom side. (There will be some leftover)

NOTE* I didn't worry about getting right to the edges, as we are using ours as a Swim/Water-play bag!


So, trim it of like this.


Step #6 - Now, for the Handle, Stitch how ever many you desire for the length of handle you want, stitching the top of a pouch to the bottom of another pouch.


I used 5 pouches per strap.


Step #7 - Fold it in half and stitch down the edge.
Then, attatch the handles where you desire on your bag.

NOTE* I sewed my handles on after sewing the bag together, but I would advise sewing them on before sewing the sides together.

NOTE* I used 24 CAPRISUN Pouches to create this bag!


Now, throw on a swimsuit and hit the beach, lake, pool, party (or make one for a gift!)! Just ENJOY!! :)
