It's a good thing I did as this bag is made up of about 38 juice pouches, or about 4 boxes. Blockette hasn't even been in school for 38 days yet.
I found basic directions on how to assemble a Capri Sun lunch bag from the blog Thrifty Fun. The size of the bag I took from the Capri Sun Beach Bag over at Shelstring.
I think I made a mistake attaching the straps to the outside of the bag. It probably would have looked better sewn on the inside. I attached them on the outside because I like to pin things and you can't pin a plastic juice pouch. So, instead, I used the markings on the outside of the bag to line things up.
The straps nearly killed my machine. Once the needle came out completely from the machine and almost broke off inside the sewing machine. A couple of times I had to stitch backwards because I couldn't get the plastic-y material to cooperate.
My goal is to make a bag for each one of Blockette's teachers as an end of the year present. We'll see if that happens though. At the very least, I've got this one finished.
