Great for gifts or any occasion!
The first time i attempted to make one it took me about 20 minutes but now i could probably do it in my sleep in under 5 minutes! Its quite simple to make even if you have only basic knowledge of a sewing machine. I wouldn't try sewing one by hand (although, i've heard of people doing it). Another tip is dont uses the "hour-glass" shaped pouches such as 'Minute Maid' and 'Honest Kids' (Their shape makes them impossible to use). Stick to the juice pouch brands that have rectangular shaped pouches such as 'Capri Sun', 'Kool Aid Jammers', and 'Hi-C'. Theres tons of other tutorials online but i think mine is the only that shows how to make two pockets.

Not to brag or anything but this tutorial is better than all the other..
