I have a problem.....I seem to collect grocery bags and I never use them all. So I decided that I was tired of picking bags up off the floor that I was going to make something to hold a smaller amount.All you need for this project is a dish towel, some elastic, a few inches of ribbon (or fabric), and a sewing machine.
Start by folding your towel in half the long way with the pretty side facing each other. Then sew a straight stitch down the side. I also did a zig zag stitch to make sure it wasn't going to fall apart.
Then fold over the botton to make a tube and sew around it. Put some elastic in side it and finish it off. Or you can just sew the elastic straight onto the existing hem. I did one of each... :) Then attach a ribbon or loop of fabric to hang it on.
