Arrow ISO directions for plastic bag holder

I am looking for directions on how to make a holder for plastic grocery bags (which I seem to have a million of!). Many I have seen are at craft shows and are made of kitchen towels. I think you stuff the bags in the top and pull them out through the bottom so it must involve elastic or something. I would really, really like to find the directions for this project! Thanks for any help.

Hi I have the pattern Plastic Bag Holder

okay just take your kitchen towel and fold long ways and sew up the side, take elastic and sew on both ends, make a hanger to hang up by. now you are done! just stuff towels in the top and pull out the bottom, you can also make these bigger by sewing 2 towels together!!

if you get a towel that the pattern is upside down you can cut the towel in half and resew the towel together and do the following above.

Please PM me to let me know how you liked them. I have made hundreds of these towel bag holders. Also cute out of material, old blue jeans etc.

Thank you.

Thanks so much!

I really appreciate your reply with the directions and it sounds very simple. Your comment about using blue jean material has me thinkin' hard as I have some trimmings from shortening my granddaughter's jeans for school last fall. Some are short pieces and some are quite long (when I had to cut them into shorts).

Question: Will seams from piecing the blue jean pcs. together interfer with the bags sliding down the "chute" or bag on the inside?
Thanks again!

Hi Friend!

I would suggest on the blue jean material bag if you are going to sew pieces together to make the bag to have another piece of material to make as a lining!

These are fun to make and very useful. You can make them any size and everyone loves them! I also make some out of material and applique say like an apple on the front of them. Looks cute hanging in the kitchen, or just hang in your pantry closet, or where ever!

Hope to chat with you soon so we can share other ideas!

bag bags(plastic bag holders

i make and sell these at bazarrs and craft shows.
material can be mesured to any length you like
measure with to 8 -10 inches
sew this into a tube shape
hem top of tube and leave small opening to thread a nice cord or ribbon thruand tie in to bow for top(this is used to hang the bag fromand to load bags thru)
for bottom hem with elastic insize tight enough so bags do not fall out , but loose enough to pull bags thru
use any material u like to match your home
can be made in any lengths
other use that i have for them is :holding rolls of spare toilet paper,socks,bras,undies, etc
i make them to match my rooms
also if you use ribbon ties on each end and ajust width to fit you can use these to cover roll pillows(can change with different seasons or decore,easy remove and to wash pillow covers
