How to sew a garbage bag for your vehicle. This has an open rim made from an upcycled wire hanger so it makes it easy for kids to toss their garbage- without leaving their car seat. These would make great gifts for the holidays!
I have discovered something… my kids have no problem throwing their garbage into a bag if I make one available in the car. But garbage never made it into our tiny garbage bag because it was hard for the kids to reach and really a bit small for the amount of garbage we produce before I empty it (totally my fault).
I decided to make something bigger, something that would make throwing things out from the comfort and safety of their car seats much easier. And I think I have succeeded! I placed it behind the passenger seat- my oldest son sits behind it and he’s forward facing (and has long arms!) so he will be the most likely to actually put the garbage in there. Now I can hand HIM garbage whenever I need something thrown out… oh how the tables have turned!

Step 6: Feeding the hanger through the casing. Once I got it all the way around, I held the two ends together and taped them with heavy duty tape. Then I just sewed the casing closed.
