So this is what Cher from Clueless would refer to as a Monet. “You see, it's like the painting see, from far away it's okay, but up close it's a big ol' mess.”
I made my own pattern for a car trash bag. I decided to make a removable liner using PUL fabric. This is what people use to make diapers – it is waterproof and I can take it out to wash it. It stays in place with snaps in the front and back. Because it isn’t so pretty where I sewed the snaps on, I made my first covered button to hide it! I also made my first buttonhole for the top to hang over my car lighter.
Sometimes it is hard to sew with a 4-year-old around and two cats that love to help sew. I wouldn’t have it any other way but mistakes get made and I rush, too.
With this project, I used some medium-weight interfacing and home dec fabric. I accidentally sewed the interfacing in the wrong order and had to take out all my sewing. So that weakened the edges a bit and I had to sew over a few spots again and the bottom of the bag turned out different than I wanted and, and... Well, you get the picture. So enlarge at your own risk.
I think if I sewed one again, I could make a tutorial if anyone is interested.
