On the fourth day of Christmas . . .

Is it wrong to love a trash bag?

That was my question recently to Allyson of Allyson Hill who makes what she calls, "Modern Accessories for Your Automobile."

Untitled2

I call what she makes a surprisingly-cute trash bag that hangs in my car and makes me feel like there is hope for containing, umm hiding, the endless bits and pieces of stuff that used to end up in my car's cupholder.

Her trash bags feature a fully-adjustable strap so you can you choose the strap placement (side or center) and tighten the strap exactly how you want it. That means it will fit on your gear shift or on the back of a seat. Plus, there's a hidden lining which allows you to conceal a plastic bag that you simply remove and replace when it's full. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the trash bags come in fun fabric choices to personalize your car!

Allyson is going to give one of you a trash bag in the fabric of your choosing. And I promise that you too will be asking if it's wrong to love a trash bag. (The answer, by the way, is definitely "no.")

To enter this giveaway simply go to the Allyson Hill etsy store and look at all the fun fabric choices and then come back and tell me what you'd pick if you won.

This giveaway will be open until 12:00 midnight on December 10.

You may see all of the giveaways by clicking on the "12 Days of Christmas" label at the bottom of this post.

  1. Fabulous idea! I love the "Rocket Pals" vintage looking fabric! This would also be great to store little toys (Happy Meal toys, etc.) and pacifiers! :) Your "favorites" are so wonderful, Kristi!

  5. Who knew there were so many fabrics for trash bags? I'm going to have to go with "Mocha Garden." I like that it's the artist's own design...and it just jumped out at me!
    Thanks!

  8. Birds on brown is my fave! I have gotten some great new gift ideas thanks to You!

  9. for trash? I'll use it for anything else from hiding snacks for those unexpected occassions, colors and small toys, and anything else under the sun so kids will be busy while I drive and not get the occasional scream or sentence of, "mom, are we there yet"?

    Lovely fabrics!

  10. I love the 2D Zoo in Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love the White Mocca... I really need ones of these. My kids think the car floor is a trash can. Try as I might, garbage always ends up there.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like several but I think I decided on Patchwork and Lace design.

  24. What a great idea and solution to an ever growing messy car problem. Amazing how much mess can be caused by adding one baby. I love the Yui Kokeshi fabric. It think it is classy with some whimsicalness to it.

  28. Green Wallflowers is the one I would choose if I won. I can think of many things I could use those for. It would be great for holding crayons and a coloring book for those long trips to grandmas. These are GREAT!

  29. I love the Mocca Garden car trash bag. This would be by far the most useful of all the little extras ever, except for the child and the booster seat in my car.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea! If I won this I would choose the mocca garden fabric and I would hang it on my gear shift. If I don't win this, I will probably go buy one. But, I LOVE this idea and could definitely use one of these! Awesome idea! :)

    Thanks,

  38. Who knew it could be so hard to choose a trash bag :) I really love this idea! I like Green Wallflowers!

    How in the world do you find this stuff?

  40. I love, love, love this! I am a freak about keeping my car clean and the green wallflower would be a nice addition to my car.

  43. Car Litter Bag - Yui Kokeshi

    This one is by far my favorite, so clever!!!

    Blessings,
    Robin

    ReplyDelete
  44. Pink Damask - definitely!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. They're all cute. I think I'd go with Light Bright!

    ReplyDelete
  46. These are terrific! I am just having so much fun seeing your picks for each day--and planning what I'm going to be buying soon! These are also great gift ideas, so thanks!!

    I'd pick the "Yui Kokeshi" fabric...

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are great, but there are way too many to chose from! Kristi, you have great taste... if I win, will you chose one for me and surprise me? :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. You crack me up! I'm thinking Ginger tile breeze would look fab in my dark gray van interior. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. How cool it would be to have one for each child?!? Would I still end up with cheerios on the floor? I really like the Tokyo Swirl one...how fun would the car look with that!

    I like the black and white octagon grid. With a little girl getting older I would imagine this will be coming in handy in the years to come!

  51. Karen Proulx5:41 PM

    I love the iron work blue, and light bright, either one of those is my favorite.

    The 12 days of Christmas is a great idea. I did not know of Etsy before now. I love it and can't wait until I am done work so I can surf.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like 2-D Sage. It sure would beat that Wal-Mart bag that I use now.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Now this is hard to choose. White Mocca I suppose to go with my white car with gray interior but Yui Kokeshi is perfect for obvious reasons. The name sounds Japanese but I have been told the dolls are Chinese and the hat looks Chinese. Anyway, another great etsy find Kristi. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  54. What a great idea! I think Yui Kokeshi is a very cute pattern, and Kerri agrees with me!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great idea! We could definitley use one for our car. I would pick this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36171729. It's called "Zinnia Bliss." I absolutley love the colors.

    Fun, fun, fun, and for trash no less(!) The Yui Kokeshi is perfect for my silly girls and all the sunglasses they collect and warehouse in my car...so much more stylish than the Disney carriers that I presently have hanging off the back of the seats. Thanks, Jeanne

    ReplyDelete
  79. I really like the camo one, my son would love it, but I'm afraid with all the other just in the back seat he wouldn't be able to see it! haha

    ReplyDelete
  81. rocket pals rocks!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thanks for doing this great giveaway, Kristi! What a pretty and useful bag - love that the plastic bag is hidden. All the designs are nice but I'd pick the Rocket Pals if I had to choose. Thanks, Wendy

    ReplyDelete
  83. I bought one for my sister-in-law last year for Christmas and I was so jealous of it! I'm a sucker for red polka dots. : )

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yui Kokeshi all the way. Would my children actually make use of the trash bag though? Hmmm...they seem to think the backseat floor is a trash bag (or a dump).

    ReplyDelete
  85. So cute, love the Yui Kokeshi bab.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yui Kokeshi would be my pick and I might have to go buy it. :)

    This beats a plastic bag hanging in the car any day! Love the idea and so pretty too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. these are one of the most precious things i've seen. i love them. what makes them great is they don't add clutter to your car like some trash bags do. they are just neat and cute. if i had to really really choose one, it would be "fresh poppies", but there isn't a single one that wouldn't look good. what a great idea!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  99. You're killing me! My husband's gonna kill me for all this shopping I am going to do LOL. These are awesome and we certainly generate some trash in our family. I love the Yui Kokeshi pattern.

  108. We NEED this for the ever growing, little bits of trash on the floor of the back seat...hand-wipes, old lists, etc. It's a great design!

    I would choose the Yui Kokeshi fabric. Charis would love looking at it.

  110. ooohhh--What a super idea! I love the multi dots or the cherry moon. Really all of them are so cute. Right now I have an ugly plastic bag hanging out in the front of the van for collecting garbage--not very cool at all!
    I'm loving all these favorites of yours!
