Eezy Peezy Garbage Catcher for the Car

So, I went and had my car cleaned out because me and my husband are lazy and detailed and after filling a Walmart sack full of trash (wrappers, Kleenex, straw wrappers, etc...don't judge), I decided something needed to be done.

I actually have been meaning to make one of these forever...I first saw them at Fireflies and Jellybeans.  Anyhoo...I thought, "I can do that."
What do you think?

1.  All I did was take a square piece of fabric (make any size you need) and folded it in half.  

2.  Then I cut and measured a coordinating fabric to make a border around the top.  

3.  Then take a piece of fabric (big enough to loop around a knob or whatever in your car) for the loop and tri-fold it.  Then sew right down the middle of the fold to secure it.

4.  I folded the edges of my border piece a little and ironed it still.

5.  I pinned the border to the main piece with the loop in between and sewed all the way around.

6.  Then I boxed the bottom corners and turned right side out.

7.    Lastly, I top-stitched the sides of the border portion for a little strength.

I think I'll make one of these for all the girls in the family for Christmas.  Who couldn't use one!?
Makes a quick gift!  I'll make a tut soon for one with a lining!

  1. I have one of these in my car too! I love it, my car would be a DISASTER without it. I like your fabric better though, you did a great job!

  2. This is such a great idea! I really need to do this for my truck so I won't be so messy.
