This sewing tutorial by Jenny Garland demonstrates how to sew a very functional vehicle seat “Diddy” bag. You can use it as a litter bag or as a toy/activity bag.   The interior of this storage bag is sewn out of laminated cotton fabric, but of course you could make this bag with wipe-clean surface such as oilcloth, vinyl, or a marine-grade acrylic canvas.  If you have a rotary cutter and would like some free tips on how to change as well as sharpen your blades, scroll down to the video below to hear from Fons & Porter.
