Plastic Bag Holder

Brought to you by Diane DeArmond
Here is something I found when I was home in western N.Y. At first I thought it was some kind of unbrella holder then I found out it was realy a plastic grocery bag holder. This is my version of one.

  1. Take a piece a fabric 16"x27", fold right sides together so it is 8"x27", sew 1/4" seam down the 27" side, hem one end, hem other end over 4"lenth of 1/2" of elastic.

  2. Now make a handle from 5"x13" piece of fabric by folding rightsides together 2 1/2x 13", sew 13" side with 1/4 seam , turn rightside out, add to the body of the bag(16"x27") the side without elastic.

  3. Now comes the fun part, put the plastic bags in one at a time at the top of the body bag. Then pull the plasic out at the bottom(elastic end), just like an upsidedown kleenex box. this looks great if you make it from scraps of fabric stripped together for a quilted look. Diane DeArmond
