Do any of you have kids that you haul around in your car? If you do, then you probably also have trash in your car. It's just inevitable. Unless you have highly trained children who never eat in your car, or who never bring their junk with them. Even if you don't have kids, I think it's safe to say that everybody probably could use one of these:
It used to be that I would bring a plastic grocery bag out to the car to bag up the trash people would leave behind. (Never me, of course, just the other people I drive all over town in my car.) But one day I got this idea of a great way to utilize some of my laminated fabrics.
Now I have one in my car, my husband has one in his, and each of my driving children have one in their cars too. I've also given them to some of my neighbors, and my parents...just because I enjoy making them so much. They probably never have trashy cars like mine, but I still think every car needs one.
So I decided to make a little free pattern for anyone who is interested. I call these "Trash Stashers". Anyone can make these! Really.
In the next couple of days I will create a link for you so you can download the instructions to print off your own. It's not a difficult pattern, so if you are a beginner, this is a great pattern for you to try!
These fabrics shown are from my Bohemian Festival collection, coming out in June! I love the yummy colors, and the fun patterns in this collection, and I have been busy sewing like crazy with it! I've yet to take pictures of all the fun things I have made...but I'll get them up for you soon! The laminates are rich and colorful...so fun to work with!
I'm on my way to quilt market in two days...in Kansas City! I will try to get the pattern up before I go.
Check back soon!
