Capri Sun Bag
My first step by step project... please excuse my bad English, I hope everything will be understandable ^^

I made this bag of Capri Sonne (German Capri Sun ;) ) packages. My bag has a little inside pocket, but I can't really describe how I made it.

    Step 1

    That's what I used for my bag ^^

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 2
    Step 2

    Decide how many packets you want to use and how to sort them. As you can see in the picture of the finished bag I used 6 for the front/back and 2 for the sides.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 3
    Step 3

    Put the first two packages next to each other, overlapping just a tiny bit. Fix with adhesive tape (from the back)

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 4
    Step 4

    Stitch the packages together, using a denim needle. The sewing machines might have problems transporting the packages, maybe it will also skip some stitches.
    You can use wide zigzag stitch or straight stitch, depending on personal taste ^^

    Step 5

    For the front and back side just make two rows of three packages and glue/stitch those together afterwards.

    Step 6

    Make the rest of the sides the same way.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 7
    Step 7

    Cut the base out of the denim. You might want to double the fabric for this to make it sturdier.
    Use the width of the front and side panel as measures.
    Remember to add seam allowances!

    Step 8

    Cut the lining out of the denim, just use the capri sun pieces as patterns. Don't forget to add another base piece.
    Remember to add seam allowances!

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 9
    Step 9

    Sew the first capri sun piece to the base, left side on right side. As you can see, capri sun packages on fabric is even trickier than just sewing capri sun packages...

    Step 10

    Sew the remaining capri sun pieces to the base.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 11
    Step 11

    Stitch the capri sun pieces together, left side on left side. This means the seams will show on the right side, which looks pretty cool in my opinion.

    Step 12

    A picture of how I made the inside pocket, maybe it will help to make your own... I just don't know how to explain that Oo

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 13
    Step 13

    Inside pocket again, sewn on one of the lining pieces.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 14
    Step 14

    The... erm... flap(?) to close the inside pocket.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 15
    Step 15

    ... and the finished inside pocket.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 16
    Step 16

    Sew the sides of the lining. You might want to leave one side open to make adding the base piece easier. I forgot that xD

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 17
    Step 17

    Add the base.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 18
    Step 18

    Add the straps to the lining, facing the obviously wrong way. The top edge of the lining will be turned down in the next step, so the straps will show the right way up ^^
    In this step you can use a piece of strap material to add the d-ring, too.

  • How to make a carton bag. Capri Sun Bag - Step 19
    Step 19

    Turn the top edge down (about 1cm, maybe a bit more), out the lining into the bag and stitch the top edge.
    Congrats, your bag is finished =)

I saw someone with a purse like this years ago when I was working for an arts and crafts store. They had several different bags they made and I loved them all. I'm no good at sewing or anything so it always amazed me how cool they looked.
