Plastic bags from the grocery store can take up a lot of room in a kitchen, pantry or bathroom. A cute way to keep them under control is by keeping them in a bag holder that looks like a doll. Easy to make, you won't mind displaying this because it looks like anything but a plastic bag holder. You can use either a fabric doll that you purchase at a craft store, or even a child's 12-inch plastic doll.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut a strip of fabric with a length roughly 20 inches long.

  2. 2

    Sew the fabric to the hem of the doll's dress. The new "dress" should measure about 27 inches from the shoulder to the bottom.

  3. 3

    Sew a 1-inch seam binding about 3 inches from the bottom of the fabric. You can put it on the inside of the fabric or the outside, depending on how you like the look.

  4. 4

    Using a safety pin to help pull it through, thread the 12 inches of elastic through the seam binding. Sew the rough edges down.

  5. 5

    Attach the ring or yarn to the back of the doll's head with craft glue or a hot glue gun so that it can hang on the wall. Just place a small dot on the back of the head and press the ring or yarn into the glue. You may need to hold it there for a few seconds.

  6. 6

    Insert plastic bags through the bottom of the doll hanger.
