Have you ever been driving and you hear a little voice from the back seat, “Here Mama”? Still watching the road and blindly waving your hand in the back seat to grasp a hold of whatever your little one is trying to hand you. For me, it’s usually trash.
I did not have oilcloth or laminate cloth on hand. I just used denim and a heavier woven fabric and added some batting to help stabilize it. I also used shorter straps and just added Velcro. Either way it’s a great craft!
Since my trash container is 100% cotton fabric I decided that I would still use a plastic bag for lining. So where should I store these little plastic bags? Well…I crafted a sweet, little matching tote to hold the plastic bags. Here’s how I did it.
1/2" elastic (cut two 7" strips)
2 - 4"x12" strips of cotton fabric
1- 4"x12" strip of denim fabric
1-2"x12" strip of fabric, denim or cotton for strap (I used cotton)
press both 4"x12" strips of cotton fabric in half, lengthwise
