One LEFTOVER piece of fabric cut 16" by whatever length you want your bag holder to be plus 4" extra for hems.
LEFTOVER acrylic paint with fabric medium added (so it could be washed) to paint my stencil. Next I sewed the 16" sides right sides together to form a tube. Turn the tube right side out. Fold the top of the tube over and press. Fold over again to make the hem. I top stitched all round the top where the fold is. Then I stitched all around where the hem is and left a gap. Do the same on the bottom of the tube.
Next I cut off the waistband of my LEFTOVER panty hoes (with runs...yeah I know...I still wear them to church) and used this for the elastic. I got 2 pieces....chunky size hoes pays off!!!! Thread the elastic through the the gap in the hems using a safety pin. Stitch the ends of the elastic together and sew the gap in the hems closed.
Now I have a dispenser for my LEFTOVER plastic bags !!!!!!!!!
