Grocery Bag Holders

I think I am officially the queen of finding tutorials and following them. It appears as of late that I am not all that creative on my own. Maybe that should be my New Year's resolution.

Anyway, about 1 1/2 years ago I made a GROCERY BAG HOLDER for our kitchen so that we would have somewhere to store our plastic grocery bags. My mother saw it while visiting and mentioned that she would like one so I made her one for Christmas. Her kitchen colors are greens and yellows so I tried to follow her color scheme.

I love this project because it is so useful and it helps brighten up your kitchen or closet (depending on where you hang it). Once I finished my mother's bag I decided that I should also make one for my best friend Mary.

Her kitchen colors are light blue, navy, and brown. I found this fabric at JoAnn's and thought it would be perfect. After it was finished it became my favorite. I love the floral design and the colors are beautiful. I hope you enjoyed your gifts Mary and mom!


  1. So I love it! And so does Bryen! He loves putting the plastic bags in there and carrying it around! I did get your package thankyou! I sent you a text but I am not sure if you got it. But call me when your back in town. I am pretty opened anytime after the new year.

  2. Very creative! I've never heard of that project before. I usually throw away any plastic bags I bring home unless they are from Target. I try to remember my reusable grocery sacks when I go out food shopping.

  3. Thanks for reminding me about this great tutorial. I just made one and am in love with mine!!!
