Are you a grocery bag collector? Use them for mini garbage can liners? To carry picnic lunches in? To throw diapers in before throwing those stinky bombs in the garbage?
Where do you put all of your bags? Need a tutorial for one? Well, here you go.
Now, I know no one really sees these if they are tucked away in a closet.......but maybe it'll make you smile every time you see it, if you pour your little heart out while making it. Go on and make it with some darling fabric to brighten up that closet. Just an idea.
• If you want your holder all one color - 1 piece of fabric, 20 x 25 inches. If you want strips like pictured here, you'll need 9 pieces of fabric, 20 x 3 1/2 inches.
• 2 pieces of narrow elastic (1/4 wide or smaller). 11 inches and 6 1/2 inches.
• 1 piece of ribbon - 14 inches long.
If you're using strips, sew all of them together along their long sides (1/4 inch seams). Iron all of the seams open.
Next, turn the holder right side out and pin the ribbon (I turned the end under once) into place, about 3/4 of an inch from the top. Sew the ribbon into place several times, making it secure.
