It was time for a new Car Diddy Bag (this time for my car) and I was in an All-Star mood yesterday... so here it is!!!
Because I wrote the tutorial for my Car Diddy Bag almost 2 years ago, I had to go back and read it to remember how to make it, lol.
In case you didn't recognize the fabrics immediately, I'll tell you: they are the beautiful Tula Pink All Stars Coordinates. I am so in love with the colors here, and the fact that she included stripes and polkadots means that everything I make with them will be beautiful. Don't you think?
I did make 2 small changes to the pattern this time. Since I want this to hang in the middle row of my car (behind one of the headrests), I made the strap adjustable with velcro.
I was sewing with a friend when I made it and I didn't want to go out in the cold to measure the strap length to make sure it was right for the car, but she kept reminding me that I should, so I did. And I'm so glad! I would have gotten the length of the strap all wrong if I had just eye-balled it.
Now it fits perfectly - just the way I want it. I had originally planned this to be a little trash holder for my kids to use in the middle seat, but now I think it's too pretty for trash!
Oh, and the other change that I made was I didn't include the hidden pocket in the back. Because what do my kids need a hidden pocket for??? They don't need to have secrets from mama. ;)
