Materials Needed:
  • Hand Towel - the bigger the better
  • 1/4" or 1/2" elastic
  • 9" of Ribbon
  • Thread

Step 1

Cut the tag off of the towel. I've found it tends to get in the way of the bags dispensing properly.

Step 2
Cut elastic about 4-5 inches SHORTER than the width of your towel. Make sure you are measuring on the short side of your towel.

Step 3
Sew about 1" of the elastic to the towel.

Stop sewing and pull the elastic tight. Carefully pull the elastic as you sew until you reach the opposite side of the towel.

Step 4
The base of your towel should be bunched up and stretch.

Repeat steps 1-3 on the opposite side of the towel.

Step 5

With right sides together, pin the 2 long sides of the towel together.

Step 6
Sew along the long side of the towel.

Make sure to backstitch or you'll be sorry because your thread will begin to pull and your stitches will come out from all the pulling as you get your trash bags out.

Step 7

Attach a ribbon to the elastic on one side of the towel. Then sew the ribbon to the towel.

See how easy this diy plastic bag holder is! Now you can store all those bags without going nuts.
