I was thinking about the last 2 projects that I'd done. The reusable garbage bags, and the reusable bag from a Pillow case.

I got thinking also about needing to get a bag for garbage in the car. We usually reuse a plastic shopping bag. (In spite of having lots of reusable bags, we still end up with plastic bags.)

Then, like a flash, I realized I could make a bag from a Pillow case: we don't put "Messy stuff" into the "Car Garbage" very often. and, even if we do, what difference would it make? That's why it's washable.

So, I went to the Hall Closet: in some of the older stacks, I found a really old (very stained) pillow case. Just what I needed.

Similar to my previous post, I used the Singlet Shopping Bag Tutorial. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0) Again, {mostly} following her Crafty Majesty's instructions, I put together a bag. Instead of lining, I used a facing. Which I sewed down this time. (It's for garbage: I wouldn't want to be digging trash out from between the facing and main bag.) I then boxed the bottom, which I sewed down, also. (same reason: I din't want garbage caught in it.)



Now, to put it out into the car. It ought work well.

This looks perfect for any vehicle, and I've been meaning to make one for mine.  Thanks so much for sharing!

 JS, thank you. It is working out great. As I'd said, we don't put"messy trash" in the car-garbage, so it didn't need to be a plastic bag. Being from a pillow case, it's somewhat larger than the usual plastic bag garbage, so it holds more. (That just means you don't have to empty it so often.)
