Fun with Juice Pouches

**Update:  Some of you have expressed an interest in a tutorial for the wallets and notepad holder.  I wish I could provide one for you, but I bought a pattern online showing me how to make them and can't reproduce the pattern in any form.  If you're interested in the patterns, you can find them HERE. 
**The purses/bags and headbands are a different story.  I made those on my own, and would be willing to do a tutorial for them if you'd like!  Just let me know by leaving a comment!

I've mentioned before that my awesome SIL has been saving/collecting empty juice pouches for me. These are just a few of the things I've been making with them:

I'm loving these cute wallets....
There's plenty of space for your bills.....

....and for your change!


A fun notebook holder lined with fabric that has a place for your pen/pencil.


And a reversible headband! I'm still trying to work out the kinks on this one so it's easier to make, but it's still pretty cute!

I've got 7 messenger bags in the works, along with a few other things I'll hopefully be able to share soon! I LOVE making stuff out of juice pouches, but HATE that my stash never seems to stay stocked up for long! I guess I need to be more assertive about collecting them....even if it means digging through the trash when I see some there(or making my kids do it for me;)!

My daughter has been begging for a juice box bag for weeks, and I told her there was NO way I was buying one. I'd love to see a tutorial on them--then we'd all be happy around here. :-)

I would love to see a tutorial on the headband, my 4 year old is addicted to headbands and she would freak if I made her one like these!

They are soo adorable.
