|Chicken egg basket print cotton - perfect for kitchen sewing!|
40cm x 45cm piece of fabric - cotton prints are easiest to sew
6cm x 20cm piece of fabric for the hanger
Two 20cm lengths of 1cm (or less) elastic
Matching cotton thread
Fold over a 2cm hem on each of the short ends and sew down with a straight stitch
|Make a large hem at each end of the plastic bag holder to leave room for the elastic to go through|
Place a pin on each end of the elastic, pin one end to the start of the hem and use the pin on the other end to thread the elastic through the hem.
|A safety pin in the end of the elastic makes it easier to thread through the hem|
Do the same for the hem at the other end
|If the elastic is thin enough you can knot it to hold it in place until you sew up the sides of the plastic bag holder|
|The plastic bag holder all pinned and ready to be sewn together|
Make a hanging loop by sewing a 6cmx10cm tube of fabric together, pattern side in. Turn in the right way and iron flat. Sew to the top of the plastic bag holder.
