To start, I made sure the pouches were washed and dried thoroughly. I found the easiest way was to cut a slit in the bottom to get everything clean.
I machine sewed two pouches together straight down the centre, and repeated to give two sides of the pencil case. The only problem with the plastic/foil material is that any holes aren't self healing, so I'd recommend not using pins as they will create marks. I found that a bit of sellotape helped keep things in place and can always peeled off afterwards.
This was a fun project and great way to use up old juice pouches! My brother seemed to really like it as well!
