Today I wanted to share a fun throwback post from several years ago. If you are anything like me, you save all your grocery bags from the store. You probably have like a million. Well, today you are in luck. We are sharing our Grocery Bag Organizer Tutorial from a few years back. You're going to love it!!
9" of Ribbon
First, cut the tag off, this way it doesn't get in the way or get pulled out when you are removing trash bags.
Next, cut your elastic about 4-5 inches SHORTER than the width of your towel. Make sure you are measuring on the short side of your towel.
Sew and backstitch the elastic to the towel.
Then pull the elastic tight as you sew. This will pull the ends of the towel in.
The base of your towel should be bunched up just like the picture
Repeat adding the elastic to the opposite side of the towel.
With right sides together, pin the 2 long sides of the towel together.
Then sew from the top to the bottom. 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.
Attach a ribbon to the elastic on one side of the towel. Then sew the ribbon to the towel.
Voila! You now have a clean and easy way to store your grocery bags.
