Car Caddy 2

I have been waiting and waiting for a reason to make a second car caddy because K's caddy has been such a success. Finally, we were invited to a little boy's birthday party this coming Saturday.
I did a few things differently this time around. Instead of snaps, I used a strap with velcro to make it easier for kids to open and close. I cut a strip of the same exterior fabric, which in this case was corduroy, 2 1/2 inches wide, and 3 1/2 inches long. Fold it in half lengthwise with right sides together and sew along that seam. Turn right side out, tuck one end in and sew along that end.

Sew  the hook part of the velcro (or the scratchy side) onto the end you just finished.

Insert the strap before you sew the front and back to each other, with the strap's raw edge lined up with the caddy's raw edge. Make sure you have it facing the right way so when it's turned right side out, the velcro side will face in when you wrap it around.
Cut a piece of loop, or soft, velcro the size of your tire, and sew it to your tire...make sure the strap reaches that far or else you'll have to just sew it wherever the strap will reach.

Everything else I did exactly the same and had so much fun making this! I can't wait to fill this up with cars and give it to this little boy! For the rest of the instructions, head over to my first car caddy.
I love that each time I make one of these, I can make it as unique as I want based on the fabric I have on hand. I definitely love the corduroy for the front!
