Today I dusted off my cutting table, cleared the cobwebs off my sewing machine, and checked my rotary cutter for rust. I made a small but (in my world at least) necessary item. A car trash bag. And it’s rather cute if I don’t say so myself. Originally there was supposed to be two of them, but it turns out I only had purchased enough fabric for 1.5 trash bags. This sort of thing happens to me a lot, not sure why….
So anyway, since it’s not worth another trip to Big J’s and another $15, I’ll just stick with one, thankyouverymuch. But, I think I read somewhere that if there’s no pictures it didn’t happen, so here’s the pictures!!
So I used this pattern here, which I thought was well-written and easy. I only made one modification, and that was to use a single strap with two black snaps instead of using two long ties and tying them into a bow. I figured I’m probably not coordinated enough to get all that tucked away neatly (at least not more than once or twice), and this way I never have to move the strap, I just unsnap the bag to dump it. Plus, you know, any excuse to smack something with a hammer.
Now the trick will be making sure that everyone uses it, especially the youngster!!
