Capri Sun Jacket Answered

This packaging reuse takes 140 Capri Sun juice bags and turns them into a full-on jacket. It's an impressive bit of reuse. I can't imagine drinking that much Capri Sun myself, but if that's your thing then why not flaunt it to the rest of the world?

It actually looks good! What did you use to bond them together? Please dont say "hot glue gun". Pretty, too!

vissy -- it was completely sewn together... using a zig zag stitch and my pfaff 130 which could possibly sew a bumper onto a car! thanks

I just looked up what those are. That's an impressive machine. Those juice packets never stood a chance!

This is awesome! I couldnt image drinking enough capri sun's to make it but kudos to you! I also checked out that contest on Greenwala and saw that a lady had made a jacket out of an old shower curtain! I always love seeing what people take what is considered "trash" and turn it into treasure!

AWESOME!

I just saw this posted on www.greenwala.com (an online green social network). They're looking for crafty DIYers to share their repurposed project ideas with them for a future article. Might be a great way for people here to gain exposure -- here's the article link -- http://www.greenwala.com/community/blogs/all/1344-Creative-Crafters-Share-Details-About-Your-Repurposed-Fashion-Projects

ALSO, www.greenwala.com has a few new crafty contests running, but one in particular is called "Choose To Reuse".

It asks participants to photograph an original repurposed design of their own creation.

Here are some examples of what other contestants have already submitted:

1) vinyl record garden planters

2) shower curtain turned into wearable "hoodie"

3) old sink turned "hand-tiled bird bath"

Take a look at the rest of the entries here and then gear yourself up to submit your own cool, repurposed design -- http://www.greenwala.com/greenwala_contests

The most creative reuse will win a new HP Mini 110 XP Notebook and a Deskjet D2660 printer!

Good luck and have fun!!

I've seen bags made of capri sun pouches but never a jacket. I wouldn't be able to drink all that capri sun. Maybe I'd have a capri sun drinking party...

Hi. The juice bags came from the neighbor kids. They took about 6 months to collect. Last August we had a neighborhood party, and I told the kids and the parents that I was collecting juice bags... to please leave them on my porch.
