Guest Post: Amber of Snidbits

Yesterday you saw Amber's craft interview and today she's back to share a tutorial for making your car a little more fun (with something I never would have thought of)! Without further ado, here's Amber...

I'm a Southern girl who likes to bake, read, blog, and make fun stuff! I blog about recipes (those that turned out great and those that...didn't), book reviews and craft projects I've both attempted (like these DIY felt flower clips I made recently) and those I want to try :)

I recently bought a new car and the trash bag (headrest cover) I have was not only faded from being in the sun, the pattern didn’t really match my new interior. This would just not due. So I had the idea to simply recover the bag so I could still use it. It was super simple and only cost $3 – way cheaper than buying a new one!

what you need:
  • fabric (I bought this for a $1 in the quilting section at Walmart – they had tons of choices!)
  • buttons, flowers – whatever you want to make it “pop” (I bought the flowers for $2)
  • hot glue (great for just about any project)
what to do:

  1. Measure the width of the bag and cut the fabric accordingly (I let the fabric hang a little loose – if you want to pull it taut, you’ll need less fabric).
  2. I started at one side and carefully hot glued the fabric to the bag, repeating the process until all sides were secure. I then glued the flowers on.

Ta da!

Super-creative, right? I wouldn't have thought of it in a million years (and I think I might actually have that square-pattern fabric somewhere)! A big thanks to Amber for guest posting here and remember to check out her projects and posts at Snidbits!
