diy anthropologie plastic bag holder

April 11, 2014

If you’re like me, you have a bunch of plastic bags crammed into a kitchen drawer. It’s unsightly and the bags are always getting stuck on the sides and back of the drawer. This Anthropologie bag is a great way to corral your plastic bags and finally free up that drawer in the kitchen!

  • Woven fabric (cotton or linen) 1/4 of a yard
  • Elastic (1/2 inch wide, 7 inches)
[Cut the fabric into a 19 inch by 9 inch rectangle. Using an iron, fold down the shorter sides 1 inch]
[Fold the bag over- right sides together and sew the long sides together]
[Turn the bag right side out and stitch down the top fold. Cut small slits so you can string the drawstring through]
[Cut a piece of fabric that measures 1 1/2 inches wide and 23 inches long . Using an iron, press edges towards each other]
[Fold the fabric over, iron down and topstitch in place]
[Using a safety pin feed the drawstring through the casing and knot the ends]
[Stitch down the bottom hem leaving a small opening to feed the elastic through. Insert the elastic, sew it together and then sew the seam shut]
