Grocery Bag Dispenser...

Are you one of those women that uses Pinterest with a passion, but rarely creates anything from the myriad of pins you've stored? Me too. I've decided to turn over a new leaf ...

I store the plastic bags I accumulate from the grocery store under my kitchen sink. The other day I opened it up, and it looked like a plastic bag factory blew up in my cupboard. Seriously. I decided right then and there what my next project would be, and, fortunately, I remembered I had pinned a tutorial for this very item. This Grocery Bag Dispenser is from a tutorial at Moda Bake Shop.

I happened to have a "charm pack" of fabrics in my stash, but you could also cut your own 5" x 5" squares from scraps or fabric you currently have. The project only takes 16 squares.

I used a 1/2" seam on this project, which makes finished squares that are 4" x 4".

It's amazing how many plastic bags fit into one of these dispensers. It tidies up a cupboard lickity-split!

I added a tab to the top of mine in case I ever want to hang it from a hook...

This project takes about an hour to complete, and it's the perfect project for a someone just beginning to sew.

Go here for the complete tutorial!
