With rows of pockets for the perfect in car storage system!
Perfect for important papers, notes, or maps!
(does anyone use maps these days?)
Perfect storage and organization for important glove-box items!
What kinds of things are essential to keep in the car?
scissors, knife, multi-tool, safety pins, buttons, sewing kit, gum, floss,
hair bands and clips, pens/pencils/markers, comb, girl treats, nail care,
tweezers (we all know the lighting reveals all stray hairs while in the car),
car charger, tire pressure gauge, bug spray, chapstick, allergy meds, lighter...
and all those important documents!
Did I miss anything?
Fabric: 9 by 22 inches (2)
7 by 22 inches (1)
Clear vinyl: 4 by 22 inches (1)
1/2" Double fold bias tape: 88 inches
Quilted batting fabric: 9 by 22 inches (1)
(standard presser foot, zipper foot and non stick foot)
22 inch zipper
24 inch ribbon
scissors and pins
It helps it slide while sewing on the clear vinyl.
as well as the 7 inch fabric, in my case, polka dots!
Use the non stick foot.
Sew little division lines on the clear and the polka dot fabric as often as you want.
You can make random sizes, keep them uniform or really tailor it to your needs.
I did 9 pockets.
Cut 2 inches off the top of the fabric.
Sew double edged bias tape on the 2 edges that will line up with your zipper.
This makes it look cute!
Now get that zipper foot out and sew on the zipper.
Make sure the zipper tracks have plenty of space and the fabric wont snag while zipping.
Sew the ends to secure the zipper.
Now you have the front and the back.
Stack them like a sandwich: batting, zippered piece, and then the pocket piece...
Make sure that the zipper and the pocket piece are both the right direction up,
with the right sides together, you are ready to sew the pieces together.
Start by pinning the layers together.
Start a straight stitch 1/3 of the way to the corner at the top.
sew, turn the corner, sew, corner, sew, corner, sew, corner, and then sew a little bit more!
Stop after sewing 1/3 of the top from the corner.
This should leave the middle of the top open, but all your corners perfectly sewn.
Press out all 4 corners.
Now all we need to do is fold in the fabric at the hole and sew it shut.
Fold your ribbon in half, sew it on one edge of the caddy with the pattern side folded in.
This way when you wrap the roll, the pattern will show.
Writing sewing directions is hard, hope the pictures are more clarifying!
Here's the top of the roll bag!
And it's even cute!
Full of everything I'll need while riding shotgun in the car!
