Car trash bag

Over the years, I've made several car trash bags.  I use the pattern in the book One Yard Wonders by Patricia Hoskins & Rebecca Yaker, though I leave off the pocket and I line mine with PUL.  Both my car and Husband's car have one, though his is pretty stained and gross.  Making a replacement for his car has been on my perpetual to-do list for a while, and with travel by car an actual possibility now, I finally committed to getting it done.  

I gave him his choice of several novelty fabrics I had in my stash and he picked the sushi fabric.  I used some solid green for the binding at the top, and the ends connect with snaps.  It's not a fancy finish, but it's practical and it's nice to have a fresh, clean one for any upcoming trips.


  1. What a great idea! It looks fantastic!

    1. PUL is Polyurethane Laminate, it's a waterproof fabric that is also food-safe, I've used it for reusable sandwich wraps, too. It's also used at the waterproof layer in diapers.

  4. What a great idea, and the sushi fabric is fun!

  5. Nice, Emily!!! We should all have one for each car! I love sushi, so I love the fabric!!!!

  6. This is great. I should make some for the car. I tend to use plastic ones, but the laminated fabric is perfect!
