A Tidy Little Garbage Sack
So my Man is out of town for a few days and I have high hopes of finishing a bunch of sewing projects while he's gone. Tonight I spent the evening tackling one I have wanted to make for a while. A garbage sack for the Car. I asked the kids if they would actually dispose of their trash properly if I put a garbage bag in the car for them. They said YES! and so I delivered... with the high hopes that it may actually get used.
I copied one I found on Etsy a long time ago. It has an insert that I reinforced with stabilizer and boning in the top to keep it popping open.
The idea is that you can put a trash liner in it and stuff the edges in nice and tidy like.
I did the strap differently, so I wouldn't have to think about making it adjustable. I added a snap to make it easy to remove as needed.
So anyway, here it is hanging in the car.
I may put it in a more central location so all the kids can reach it. I can't wait to show them tomorrow. The novelty of it just may get them to use it.
