If you are anything like me, then you have a collection of plastic bags that accumulate after going to the store. I always keep mine in order to take them back to the grocery store to recycle, but they also get used for other things around the house. So I am always looking for a way to keep them, besides shoving them in a bigger plastic bag in the back of the pantry. That’s where these crochet bag holders come in handy. Now I can hang them from a hook that is in a convenient location without it looking like an eyesore.
The finished bag holder has an open top where you can add the bags to the holder and a smaller opening on the bottom to allow you to pull the bags out as you need them.
