    Thanks for the post. I've been wanting to make one for both my car and for sewing and thread scraps. Someone also told me to use the plastic strips that are wrapped around cases of paper instead of the boning.

    I used the strapping tape that came around a box.. It's tough, works very well, and it's FREE!! I thought the mini blind idea was a good one also.. These bags work great! Great idea.

    This is such a neat IDEA. The moment I saw it, I said that's what I need, so I have to try to make 1 for myself & my kids. My van gets so messy. What with 5 or more grandkids riding with me sometimes.

    I printed out pages of instructions & can't wait to get started!!

    Thanks so much.

    Thank you for the site. What is boning, and how much does it cost ? God bless. Penny

    Boning is used to stiffen the bodice of dresses. Like in the period costumes of 1800's. I used it several years ago when I made bridesmaid dresses. You sew a casing then insert the boning to hold the dress stiff and hold its shape. It is plactic strips in a cloth casing. At the time I used it, it was very inexpensive, dont know about now. It was sold by the yard. Good luck.

    I have made many of these and getting ready to do a few more so I thought I'd share this link..they are so easy and fast...I used the slats from mini blinds instead of boning...could use the metal tape measure also
    I don't use the boning either. I use the "plastic" strapping that is found on pallets of freight. ( they use to be all metal but now you find a lot of plastic) best part of that is, it's free. I'm a guy and a truck driver so, you can imagine how much of this stuff I see every day.
