We have been trying to figure out how to get a net for above our toddler seats inside the car in the back for storage of our light stuff like pillows and jackets. Occy strap them to the handles on the ceiling. We found a boot net we could hang up but it is only 50cm wide we figure we could sew a couple together.

Has anyone got any solutions they have done?

We have a box trailer (elasticised) net as a 'mezzanine'. Ideal for pillows, sleeping bags and inflatable mattresses. Keeps them up & out of the way.
Probably from Supercheap. If it's too big for you, easy to trim to size.

Navigator 1 has had made up a piece of the trampoline net for a catamaran. With the fittings for the side and all it strings from side to side at the rear and takes soft things you describe.

When we had the Suzuki, pictured below, I had an aluminium roofrack made. Utilising the seatbelt bolts on the door frames, and an aluminium mesh frame with legs, a very usefull under roof storage compartment was created. I designed and cut the pieces and then had a professional weld the lot together. It worked a treat.

We use a pice if that white plastic/rubber covered shelving you can buy from bunnings (the stuff that is basically a wire frame covered in white plastic) We have that zip locked to the cargo barrier and the "grab' handles in the back seat.. it even has a litte lip on it so the jackets, pillows etc dont fall forward on a sudden stop..

I use fishing netting with about a 2 inch sized mesh. Tied at rear to cargo barrier and on sides to handles. Holds all the soft bulky stuff well, but sags a bit, mainly because it can't easily be tensioned across the front edge. Sagging doesn't worry me, but your toddlers mightn't like it.
