Craft my Ride Swap

Whilst all of us prance around with our handmade swag, and load our abodes with crafty goodness… I think our cars are feeling left out! My idea is to craft things to organize, personalize, and even make more comfortable all that time we spend in our cars. As a guidline, lets say 2  medium sized handcrafted items and a few small items that can be made or bought. Some ideas:

-Rearview mirror hangy thingies (anyone for some good ol stuffed dice?)
-I was thinking of trying to make an organizer that you could tie to the front seat headrest and would hang down the back of the seat.
-Bumper Stickers ( we might not all be into those, I’ll have a preference q on the questionaire)
-Air fresheners
-Seatbelt cover pads

So that’s what I got so far, I really think we should share our ideas on this one because the items should be practical. Let me know if yur interested. I'd be startin' sign-up in mid August  Smiley

I'm interested, but I drive a truck, so I don't have much hang-off-the-headrest opportunity. 
I'll keep an eye on this.

some type of garbage container could be good - like a mini garbage bag made of fabric that you can line with plastic

Alrighty guys! I will make the questionaire so your partner will have all the details of your car or truck and they can craft the appropriate types of items. I'm not going to have an age cut-off. If you have or are getting a permit and know that you are being handed down or bought a car I think that's fine. Just, if you don't know what kind it will be you should put that in the questionaire. I mean, we are not custom fitting stuff here I think most items will be able to serve their pupose in most vehicles. The garbage container is a great idea DithMer! I sure could use one lol.
