Plastic Grocery Bag - Storage

I don't know about you, but when I go grocery shopping, I always wind up with a million plastic bags and no place to store them. I like to keep some of them around for use in the bathroom garbage cans. Well, last night, I got tired of trying to find a place to store these bags so I made my own storage. It didn't take long to make and it's perfect for what I need!

This took me about 20 minutes to make. I love it!

Fabric size 8-1/2 inches x 25 inches.
4 inches elastic.

I cut the fabric 8-1/2 x 25 and turned it inside out.

I folded the top down about 3/4 inch and stitched it. I did the same with the bottom. I then folded the fabric and stitched it closed (reverse side out).

I threaded 2 inches of elastic through the top and bottom and stitched the ends together, then stitched the closures. This gave it the "bunching" effect.

Lastly, I cut a 1 inch piece of fabric, folded it so that there were no raw edges and stitched it together, creating a loop so this could be hung. Voila!!! A nice place to store your plastic bags.
