The first thing I thought was what a great idea.  The second thing was that your car interior looks so clean and neat.  Mine looks like I've been living in it.... I've got to make one of those too.

I love it, too!  Is the patio fabric sturdy enough to keep the shape of the bucket or did you interface it?

I love it!  I really need one too.  I usually use a grocery bag and if I don't take it out it ends up getting kicked over.  Terrific idea.

Very nice! I bought one on etsy that uses dog poop bags (the small plastic bags that come in a roll) as liners, so you can just remove the liner like a trash bag. They'd probably work with that too if you wanted a disposable liner.

Wow thank you all for the kind comments!

I'll try to answer a few of the questions.

I didn't use interfacing, the outdoor fabric held up well alone.  I found that fabric while I was out today, still on the bolt.  It said 100% Polyester with PVC backing.

The car is actually my hubby's - mine is HORRID!!!!  I don't remove it while driving and have not had any trouble with shifting.  In my van, I actually stick it over the seat belt latch (the one that comes up from the floor).  I've got ideas for doing one with an adjustable strap too, just haven't gotten around to it.

As for a tute, I am so bad at writing good ones that I give up half-way thru, but I'll give you a half-arsed tute on the top post.

This is perfect for our SUV and my hubby.  He's always on the go being a marine and I tell ya I don't think he ever cleans out the car..LOL this will lighten my load some.  Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

This is a swell idea. I"m thinking about making one lined w/ oilcloth so it can be wiped out.  I've never sewed w/ it though....

What a fabulous idea! Why don't they put a litter drawer in cars anymore? I guess they went the way of ash trays.
