Juice Pouches Galore

Yesterday and today I made several juice pouch items.  I started 5 yesterday, and I finished 8 today.

 One of the items was this backpack that I was commissioned to make.

A few of the items are not pictured, because they are christmas presents.

Here is a small container.

This will be up for sale in a craft fair in November.

Here are 3 pouches.  You can put pencils, knitting needles, crochet hooks, make-up, and other items in them.

These will also be for sale at the November craft fair.

This is a new items for me, a change purse. 

What is really great is that all the zippers used came from a going out of business sale that I went to in the Spring.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with all of the zippers at the time, especially since most of them are smaller than what I normally need.  I am also going to try my hand at making zipper flowers with some of them.

* I did not link any tutorials for these items, but they are on my blog.  Just do a search for juice pouches (top left is the search engine). More specifically, juice pouch backpack, juice pouch container, and juice pouch pencil.


  1. These turned out great. I really like the small pouches and the change purses.

  2. Hi Kristy! I've made purses and totes with juice boxes too, but I threw in the element of crochet!! Lots of FUN!!!.. I love your idea for pencil pouches though! I'll have to try that!... Have a great weekend! ~tina

  3. I've never seen crochet added to them before. That sounds really interesting. You have a great weekend to.

  4. LOVE the juice pouches!!

    Thanks for making me feel like I'm not crazy for ranting about paper towels!! I heard that too that around the 50s they were looking for new ideas to create jobs (is how I heard it) and so the "wonderful" world of disposables was born. Companies have just taken it too far! I feel like they're all trying to scare us into believing everything is super dirty!

  5. Using these are a great idea. I like the graphics of the juice pouches, the recycling and the new functions.
