I started a topic on the board about finding a way to organize my kids toys and stuff in my car. And i got alot of response on making a flap. I didnt have a pattern on how to make one and i was just staring at my oversized jeans and got a bright idea on how to turn them into something I can use! Kewl huh! I hope you guys enjoy this.

  • How to make a cars. Car Toy Keeper! - Step 9
    Step 9

    add some pretty ribbon for the back loops of the pants. I sew it on for extra precaution. Tie it on the back of the seat of your car. and TA DA! stuff the kids sippy cups, toys, books, snacks, markers, ect.(sorry its on my kitchen chair cause i was going to take a pic of it in the car but its raining like crazy at the moment) So ta da, hope you guys enjoyed this! have fun and get back to me with your creations!

is it hard to stitch denim? I remember my grandma once broke a needle on her sewing machine when she was hemming trousers.
