So I've seen these around craftster and pintrest and figured it couldn't be that hard--it wasn't! Literally a less-than-10-minute project. Of course, I skipped all the ironing that I normally do with sewing projects because this is not a proper button down shirt or a suit jacket... it holds freaking plastic bags. And is much more elegant than my previous method of holding my extra plastic bags--stuffing them all into a bigger plastic bag and hanging it on the doorknob of the pantry door...

I prefer to use canvas bags for shopping but sometimes you just get so much stuff that you have plastic bags, and I still use them for my small trash cans (bathroom, bedroom).

Anyway, all I did was take a small cotton remnant from joanns (this one was like 1/3 yard) and I cut two rectangles, stitched up the sides, make a casing at each end, inserted elastic and stitched on a tie. For me, I wanted a very narrow opening at the bottom so I used 3" of elastic and at the top I wanted to easily stuff more bags in so I used about 8" of elastic. You can be rough with your measurements, it doesn't matter. Its just a plastic bag holder Smiley

Oy, long explanation for a simple thing. sorry for the blurry photo, its hard to take a pic of a swinging nerd bag

I love the fabric you chose!  I make these sometimes, but now think I need to expand into more fun fabrics.   Smiley
