What a combination for a Mother's day gift.  But my Mom is in her 80's and there isn't too much she doesn't have already, so I made her a trash can for her car, and a tea wallet.  The trash can idea comes from here http://allysonhill.typepad.com/allyson_hill/2006/07/car_litter_bags.html.  The tea wallet I made using the tutorial here: http://blog.christyscreations.com/?p=482

I made two bags for the trash can, an exterior one and an interior one.  The interior one is interfaced with stiff interfacing and has the top of a large margarine tub (not the lid) in the top to keep it stiff and keep it open (I pinched the sides so that it does not open too much).  I used an old pair of jeans, and a bed sheet my Mom gave me (ironic I know) to make it.  I embroidered the roses on the pocket too.

Thanks for looking.
