About a month ago a friend asked me if I would make her a plastic bag holder. I said sure no problem and the thought oh no it needs elastic. Elastic and I don't get a long, many projects have been redone over and over, just because they use elastic. Never the less I said I would do it so I did, what would have been an hour or less for most people, became about 3 hours, damn elastic, but it is done!



If anyone is interested here's the link where I found the how to:

you are brave.  i would have just used string. 
(and by "would have", i mean, did, when i made one of these.)

on the other hand, yours doesn't look like an indecent saussage.

 Congrats on conquering a challenge! I love that fabric you used. With all the plastic bags we accumulate here, I may have to make one too.
Thanks for showing it!

Looks great!  I've had trouble with elastic from time to time. There are two ways to deal with it: buy the right kind of elastic (the kind you can sew over: it's usually called either sports or pajama elastic), or 2: put it in a casing.  Smiley I've frequently had trouble with the no roll waistband stuff (the needle pulls elastic loops out with it), but since I switched elastic types, I've had no trouble.

Here's where I learned about it:  http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=7802&pn=1#121626
