Guest #28 Michelle with her Car Caddy....and Riley Blake Giveaway with Book and Presencia Threads

Hello, I’m Michelle from ~Life With Lou~. Today Madame Samm invited me to
show you all the litter bag I made. Of course, I himmed and hawwed, and
got all nervous, but she said I would do fine....(I sure hope sew....) This bag is not
the first one, by a long shot, but one of many. (My friends have all humored me by
letting me put them in their cars too...thanks girls!) Here is how it all came about.

You think it is just a could be wrong!

(this is what we will be making today)

One day, my husband and I were road trippin’ making a HUGE mess out of the inside
of our van.  Me, being a neat freak, was doing the best I could to collect wrappers, papers,
and whatnot, trying to keep them all contained and neat, and I said to my husband,
‘You KNOW...what we need in here is a litter bag, like my thread catcher/scrap bag,
only without the pincushion, of course!’ As soon as I got those words out of my mouth,
I knew what I was going to do. Ok, so I had to make a few changes from the original
plan, but I finally settled on this method. The hard part was trying to figure out how
to keep the tab of the bag inside the glove compartment so it wouldn’t fall on the floor.

First of all, I chose two pieces of different fabrics, and cut them 9” x 13”. I also cut out
two pieces 4” x 5”

Fold right sides together of the fabric you are choosing for the outside
of the bag, with the long side running left to right. Sew a 1/4”

Repeat with the fabric you have chosen for the inside of the bag. Sew a 3/8”
seam on that piece. 

Arrange fabric so the seams are laying in the center, like this.

Sew a 1/4” seam across the bottom of each piece.

Turn the piece you plan to use for the outside of the bag inside out, leave the
inner bag the way it is, and turn under the top edges by a 1/4” or 1/2” and
press. (I cheated and finger pressed.)

Sew your two tab pieces around 3 sides (2 long sides and 1 short side.)

Turn inside out and topstitch around 3 sides

Insert inner piece into outer piece until the top edges are even, using the seams
to line up.

Insert tab between the two bags, about 1/2” or so. Pin, pulling the inside
bag as you pin, so there are no puckers.

Sew all around, close to the edges, or using a 1/4” foot, or both. Your preference.

Choose some buttons and floss. Two for the tab and one or two to embellish.

Start sewing the buttons on leaving the tail in the front.

Finish by leaving another tail on the front coming out the other button hole,
tie a knot, then pull the threads to the edge of the button, and snip.

Do the same thing, sewing two buttons on the tab. One on the front, and one on
the back. This is what will hold your bag inside your glove compartment. You
can sew your buttons on wherever you feel is right, either at the top, or down
more, depending on how much tab you want sticking out of the glove compartment.

Tada! Your bag is finished, and ready to hang. 

We love our litter bags, and have found that if we empty it, and
forget to put it back, we really miss it. 

Enjoy! Thank you Madame Samm for having me here today!
What color, style will you make?
