While it’s true that I’ve been switching over to cloth/canvas bags for shopping, there are still times when plastic bags are useful. I like to keep ten to fifteen on hand at home so a holder is a convenient and cute way to store them. ^_^
This project was super easy and quick. Had I not had multiple (!) interruptions, it would have taken me under thirty minutes to make. My finished bag holder will hold at least fifteen bags; in the photos here, there are ten bags inside.
I used a fat quarter and a little bit of elastic for this project. I didn’t have matching thread so I used white, but I think it would look better if the thread were invisible. That being said, I don’t think it would be worth the money to buy new thread for just one small sewing project. I rarely use my iron but in this case I felt it was worth it. ;)
I’m enjoying having a cute place to store my bags. ^_^
