Introduction: Personal Plastic Bag Holder
Do you also have so many plastic bags lying around all over? Or a large bag full of various sizes so that you can never find the right size.
That is all over now.
With this personal plastic bag holder you can keep everything neatly together and you always have the right suitable bag within reach? And it looks nice too.
If you use a shirt of a loved one who is no longer there, you also have a nice memento of this person.
Step 1: Supplies
1 coat rack
Plastic tube (I used a plastic bottle and cut the top and bottom)
1 old shirt
Step 2: Prepare the Coat Rack
Remove the clips so you have a narrow straight coat rack.
Step 3: Prepare the Tube
If you use a bottle to cut the tube, you can secure the edges with tape.
You can add more than 1 tube if you want. Then you can put more than 1 roll of sacs in it.
Step 4: Prepare Shirt
First remove the pockets and the buttons. We will use one pocket later on so keep that one aside.
Cut the sleeves on the length you want them to be. Sew a tunnel along the cut edge of the sleeve. This is necessary to thread elastic later.
Step 5: Prepare the Panels
Cut the panels to the width of the coat rack, don't forget to add a seam width. Put the front pieces together as if the buttons were closed. Sew them together along the yellow line.
Step 6: Sew Front and Back Together
Cut the yellow parts. The middle part needs to be the length of your plastic tube plus a seam on both sides. Sew the pocket in the middle on the front side. Place front and back pieces right sides together. Sew the yellow lines. Pull right side out again.
Step 7: Seam the Roll Part
Make a seam along the yellow lines.
Step 8: Make the Tunnel for the Tube
Measure the circumference of the tube. Cut the lower part on the same length of the circumference of the tube. Take the seam into account. Turn shirt inside out and sew the seam. Turn back right and sew the yellow line on the top of the tube.
Step 9: Final Step
Sew the sleeves upside down along the shirt. Put the elastic in and put the tube in.
