I do not know how we end up with so. many. plastic. bags. I take reuseable shopping bags to the grocery store most of the time. If I don’t take reuseables, I usually ask for paper since we use those for recycling. But still, somehow, we end up with piles of plastic bags. I finally had some time and whipped up this using this tutorial.
This was my first time sewing with elastic. Overall, it was much easier than expected. I did learn that I should tack down the elastic slightly in from the very edge of the casing. Otherwise, 4 layers of fabric plus two layers of elastic gets tough to sew when sewing up the long tube.
Cute, practical, love it.
