back seat car caddy/organiser

this one is currently in hubz’s car.  the in-laws are visiting soon (including my nieces) so i made this for the girls.  they can use it and then take it home with them when they return.  (in the mean time, lil j has been asking us to drive him around in this 22 year old toyota, instead of our wagon.  he calls this “the new old car”, and so he has decided to put some of his toys in one of the pockets)

i hope the girls actually like purple. the top pocket is for water bottle/can holder, and i added a loop which can be used for hanging some small soft toys

i actually made another similar one with the other halves of the fabric – they were from a set of tea towels that came with the apron i bought from our visit to the cadbury factory in tassie earlier this year (that should explain the purple-ness of the fabrics).   the other caddy has been given to my other nieces. 

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.  Mark 16:15

car caddy

it’s funny how i seemed to have forgotten about this car caddy/organizer (i really think my brain is shrinking lots, drastically).  i made this on the second day after i got my sewing machine – using this tutorial, and it has been in our car since.  

we were out in the park for a play date with one of lil j’s friends today and when i opened the car door to get lil j out, his friend pointed to the caddy and went rhhgg… uurrghh.. (i am still trying to figure out what he was trying to say to me).  that’s when i realised i had wanted to take a picture to blog about it but have not done so.  ok, actually i did take a photo when i first put it up – without stuff in it, which is the picture below.  the caddy has been filled with books, toy cars, lil j’s sunnies, sun block lotion, and a teddy ever since (an occasionally dinosaurs these days).  oh, and the mirror is there for him to make silly faces and funny faces when he is bored 😛

i used the same fabric as lil j's apron and chef hat for this caddy - only because these were the first fabrics i ever purchased! this picture was taken before we fill it up with lil j's stuff, safe for that pair of gloves.
