A no sew plastic bag dispenser and holder DIY project.
Author: Scrappy Geek
1Fat quarter of fabric (18″x22″ fabric)
Lay your fabric on the table, wrong side up. Fold and crease both the bottom and top edges at about 2 inches each. Cut a small square from the bottom corner of your fold. Secure the folds with glue. For the bottom edge, only glue the very edge and leave plenty of room to slip your elastic through. You can glue the entire top folded edge.
Turn the bag dispenser over, right side up. Fold one edge over and apply a bead of glue to one side edge, fold the other side over and stick it to the glue. Press with your fingers and allow the glue to dry. Feel free to face glue it if you’d like, either way works well.
Once this seam is dry, flip the plastic bag dispenser right side out and shimmy the elastic through the bottom fold. Ruffle the fabric and figure out where you’d like to cut your elastic. A 5 to 6 inch band of elastic should be enough. Add an extra inch or so for gluing the elastic securely.
Cut the ribbon you’ve chosen for the hanger between 12 and 14 inches long, attach to the inside of the bag using fabric glue.
Allow the fabric glue to dry before moving on to each consecutive step. Once you've completed your plastic bag storage holder and dispenser, you can hang it in your kitchen, laundry room, or whereever you need plastic bags the most.
