Have I mentioned that I love my sewing machine? I've been having a good time with it and actually made a new CD holder and trash bag for my car. I decided not to do a car caddy/organizer since it seemed like over kill. I got both of the patterns that I did use from a book called "One Yard Wonders". The projects all take, you got it, one yard of fabric plus a few other supplies. Anyway, here's a look at my newest creations:
The CD holder was just a little on the wide side and top CDs would come falling out when attached to my visor so I just sewed a seam on either side of CDs for the first four rows and it works great now!
I love the remnants bin at JoAnn's; I found a piece of vinyl in there for 50% off (so I got it for $1.50 and have tons left over) and made an insert slightly smaller than the bag itself so I can take it out for easy cleaning and avoid staining the fabric. I was nervous about sewing on vinyl but it actually worked out just fine. I use the front pocket for items I want to recycle. You can find this pattern online for free as well as in the book I got for Christmas. Just Google "Not Ugly Car Trash Bag".
