Do you remember those Capri Sun purses from about 10 years ago? They were a popular fad on eBay from what I hear. Along those same lines of sewing with recycled packaging, I give you the Starbucks Wallet.
I made this small bifold credit card wallet out of the 1 lb bag of coffee beans. Of course, I had cut the bag shorter while using it for my coffee before I had decided on sewing with it. …planning ahead? what planning ahead?… I think I’ll have to try it again, when I have a “full size” bag to work with.
If you like the idea and want to try it out yourself, note that you CANNOT iron this packaging. I did try on a tiny test piece and it curled up quickly. Thank goodness it was a low heat iron and didn’t melt into my ironing board or iron. That would have been a crazy hot mess.
Next time I’ll plan the logo positioning a little better and try harder to get that “stay fresh” plastic circle thingy out of the way in a less wasteful manner. All in all, pretty fun idea to make. Who knew a mild coffee addiction would turn out inspirational???
