Pattern Details

Update: 6/27/2015, My husbands friend LOVES the trash bag I made him (it's the black and orange one pictured). Before using this bag, he would throw his trash on the passenger side floor and have to gather it up later to throw out. He said it saves him a lot of time cleaning out his truck :) You're going to want to make several of these car Trash Bags. I've made one for both our vehicles and plan to make one to put by my bed, in my sewing/craft room, in our camper, and for my daughters' vehicles...she has three young children. I designed this Expandable litter Trash Bag because there's always some sort of trash we have to deal with, whether it's gum wrappers, fast food containers, tissues, candy wrappers, beverage containers, etc. It's nice having this bag to handle all our trash and it's attractive too! The bag can be attached to the headrest for backseat use or placed up front. For lots of trash, the bag expands up to 15" by simply pulling up the excess bag that's tucked inside. Great for tailgating, picnics, at the drive in, at the beach or pool...anywhere! The Expandable Travel Trash Bag is designed to hold a trash bag to keep it nice and clean inside. Grocery and small plastic bags fit perfectly into the bag and they can be easily pulled out, tied and tossed into the trash. The front pockets holds extra trash bags so you'll always have one when you need it. This hold-all travel trash bag can be made from my favorite waterproof canvas fabric that you get here: outdoor-canvas-fabric?variant=9913481667. It comes in solid AND printed, and is 60" wide. The trash bag is very easy and fun to make following the step by step instructions with photos. You can sell the travel trash bags you make, however you cannot sell this pattern.
