    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    Bag holders can be made in many sizes. Begin with this one and then make several others, perhaps in different sizes, for the laundry room and bathrooms using embroidery designs to coordinate with each room. These are fun and easy to make and are a great way to contain those plastic bags we love to recycle.


    Step 1:
    Gather the materials and read through the instructions before beginning. Print out a paper template of the design and color sequence. Press all the fabrics well with sizing or spray starch.

    Step 2:
    Fold the solid piece of fabric into quarters and finger press. Open the fabric and place cut out design template on the fabric aligning centers (the width of the fabric is 14”). Hoop the fabric with the stabilizer. Place the hoop on the machine and load the embroidery design. Align the needle to the center of the design template; remove the template and stitch the design following the color sequence.

    Step 3:
    Begin by pressing and stitching the hanging loop. Fold the piece of fabric in half lengthwise and then bring the long cut edges to the center and press. Next bring the folded edges together and press again. Stitch along each of the long edges and set the hanger aside until it is pinned into the last seam sewn.

    Step 4:
    After the design finishes stitching remove the fabric from the hoop and remove the excess stabilizer. Now it is time to attach the top and bottom fabrics. Place the fabrics as shown and pin them in place matching cut edges. Sew the seams using a ½” seam allowance.

    Step 5:
    Serge or otherwise finish the raw edges of the seams; press the seams toward the printed fabric. Next, finish the top and bottom edges with the serger. Fold over ½” along each serged edge to form a casing for the elastic.

    Step 6:
    Stitch both casings in place. Feed one piece of elastic through each casing and pin the ends securely. Now it is time to add the hanger and finish up the bag. Fold the hanger in half lengthwise and pin it in place at an angle and matching the cut edges of the fabrics. When flipped up for hanging after the seam is sewn, it will be positioned as shown in the last photo - make any adjustments if the hanger for your bag needs to be different.

    Step 7:
    Flip the hanger back toward the inside of the bag. Bring the long cut edges together, matching to top and bottom edges and aligning the sewn seams; pin. Sew the back seam using a ½” seam allowance and serge the edge. To hold the seam allowance in place, fold the seam allowance to one side and stitch the seam allowance in place through all the layers; repeat for the other side.

    Step 8:
    Turn the bag right side out through one of the openings and press. Fill the bag with plastic bags you wish to recycle.
