How to Make a Coupon Cart Caddy from a Free Sewing Pattern
With the popularity of the show "Extreme Couponing," this cart caddy would be handy to hang on the cart while shopping.
Tips for materials for making the cart coupon caddy.
If you have old slightly warn pieces of clothing, you can use those as the fabric for the cart caddy. This will save you money buying new material for this sewing project. You can use a different fabric to make your own bias tape rather than buying it at the store.
For the interface of the coupon caddy, you can use a heavier fabric from jeans or other pieces. This will help keep the caddy in shape during washing and usage.
Tips for a pattern for the coupon cart caddy.
If you do not feel comfortable making your own pattern like Becca, you can use a child or child apron pattern. You will need to use an apron pattern that has over the shoulder straps and a waist section with pockets. These can be found online for free.
Another way to make this coupon caddy is using toddler or small childrens jeans with pockets in the back. The no sew apron using a pair of jeans on the Klea's blog can give you an idea on how to use the back section of a pair of pants with pockets. I would suggest using heavy duty snaps to create the straps for hanging this caddy on the cart. Those can be sewn on by hand.
Tips for using the coupon cart caddy.
If you shop several stores and separate your coupons accordingly, you could make one for each store so you do not have to swap out your coupons or other items.
Using the jean apron pattern in the tips for a pattern, you can leave the belt loops on the waist band, you can use it for hanging items like a key ring style calculator, your store loyalty card with a hole punched in one corner with a clip or other items that you need while shopping.
