Step 1: Things You Will Need
Simple things you will need...
2 CapriSun pouches some sharp scissors [may need parent or guardians help], you will also need a sewing machine if you do not have a sewing machine it is possible to use needle and thread it may be a little hard.
Step 2: Cut Off the Top
The reason for this is to clean the inside...
Cut off the top and clean out with soap and warm water this will clean out any sticky liquid left behind. Do this to both. Only cut off the top.
Step 3: Close and Sew
Use a zigzag stitch, or your favorite stitch to close up the opening from where it was being cleaned. Do this to both...
Step 4: Overlaping to Make the Wallet
Trim the pouch along the top where you sewed it shut. You then want to overlap the first pouch over the second one. Then sew over the stich you made to close up the opening when you cleaned the pouch. Do this to both sides of the pouch...
Do one side, then flip it over and do the other. they will now be joined together.
Step 5: Folding
Next you are going to fold the pouch where you sewed, fold one side half way up.
Sew both sides, do not sew all the way to the top of the pouch you will be making the flap to close and open.
Step 6: Making the Top Flap
Make sure there is enough to fold down!!! After you have checked, cut off the silver edge, it will look rounded after it is cut off, then a peice from inside will come out. Sew it up then cut off the extra that might be left and thats it!! You can use velcro, or a snap, or a button and you have a little wallet!!
