I made my Mom a garbage bag for her car. I Kinda made up my own pattern for it after seeing a few online. She needed a bigger one than most of the patterns I was seeing because she drives all over Utah for her job so she eats meals in her car and snacks and all sorts of random garbage happens.

It is about 15 inches wide by maybe 14 inches tall by 1.5 inches at the bottom. I used a HUGE zip-tie for the boning at the top to hold it open, and some large gross-grain ribbon and velcro for the strap to hang on the back of the passenger seat. I also used the same ribbon for the decoration on the front and added a few buttons.

It is made with a cotton fabric on the outside and lined it with a windbreaker like material that she can wipe down really easily, and it is machine washable. She loved it and I have had requests for 3 more like it for other people!

Genius!  I love it, I've always thought they other ones I've seen online were too small.  I love the idea of the zip tie boning, and the colors are just wonderful and happy.

Great job!

Really clever idea(s) - love that you used non-traditional items for your notions.  Great job!   Should make one for my husband's new car - I'm sure he will have it "junked" up soon if I don't!

Love this!  I will have to make a couple for our cars, and maybe one each for my parents' b-days (both in April, so I have some time . . . ).  Did you use a tute or pattern or anything?  If so, could you put in a link?  If not, what are your dimensions, so I don't have to do too much trial and error?? 

Thanks!! Grin

So - okay, Duh!  You put in your measurements in the first post.  Sorry!  Guess I was reading through a little too quickly!  But I do still have a question - is that front part where the boning is the same size as the back?  It looksl ike it's longer, but that might just be the pic or the way teh boning makes it stick out . . . Trying to wrap my head around it . . .

Thanks!

I made a basic bag and then made the boning go a little way past the seams on the side. So the boning line on the front is longer than the back part. I'm not sure if I explained that well. I should have taken pictures when I was doing it. But I need to make a few more so I'll try and do a tute next time. I just need to go get more ribbon!
