There really was no tutorial out there that I saw of exactly what I wanted, so I just started to fly by the seat of my pants, and by golly it turned out :)
First you will need:
2 pieces of matching fabric for the outer shell measuring 10"x14"
4 pieces of matching fabric for the inner shell measuring 9.5"x 13.5"
2 pieces of heavy duty double sided Inner Fuse measuring: 9"x13"
1 center release buckle (that's what I used and love, but any 'ol buckle you like will do)
2 pieces of material for the straps measuring 3.5"x11"
(Note: We have a big SUV, the sizes above are made to fit a larger car, you may want to scale it down if you have a smaller sized car)
Here's the Inner Fuse I used.
Once all my pieces were cut, I sandwiched the Inner Fuse between two pieces of my inner shell fabric and ironed it like crazy. Iron both sides of the fabric.
Next, go grab the other piece of Inner Fuse and your other two pieces of
inner shell fabric and repeat the above steps.
Then you can flip it to hide the seams. Although, this Inner Fuse is heavy duty and makes it a little hard to do that. So just push it into itself slowly and then...Taa daa, its right side out! Done with the inner shell. It's nice and tough and holds it's shape fabulous. Making it nice to
shove place trash in.
Then fold them right side out.
Then, place each strap through a side of the buckle. The unsewn side
should be the one closest to the buckle.
Then, fold the unsewn end under, and hem.
Do that to both ends of the buckles. Should look like this when they are done.
Next, you will want to take one side of the buckle and sew it to the side of the otter shell where the seam is.
Now that your done with the otter shell, you can put the trash bag inside the inner shell. For the trash bag, I just used a walmart bag and cut off the handles.I always seem to have tons of those handy.
Next, if you'd like you can take a needle and thread and run a few stiches through the bottoms of the bag, attaching the two shells. I just ran like 3 large stitches by hand through the center of the bottom. It helps keep both layers always attached, even though they should fit snug. But, if you do this beware-its painful!I'm just say'n, consider yourself warned! I don't know how many times I stabbed myself reaching in the bag to grab the needle as it came through. Not to mention tying a knot from insde the bag. Not easy folks! I swear this was the hardest part , but I am glad I attached them.
Finally, test it out in your car!
Now, the fun part....cleaning out the car!
Hope this tutorial helped. Thanks for visiting!
