I was looking for easy to sew items to make for a craft show and decided to make some grocery bag holders. These are so. much. fun. They also don't take a ton of supplies or skill. I made 15 of these at once so excuse how the photos in the tutorial are of varying fabrics.

Tutorial

Cut your fabric. Serge the top and the bottom edges. If you don't have a serger, you can zig zag the edges. 

Serge top and bottom edges of the grocery bag holder.

Fold over the top edge, iron, then sew a straight stitch. This finishes the top of the grocery bag holder.
Fold over top edge, iron, and sew.

Fold the fabric right sides together, joining the two sides that haven't been serged. Serge. Turn right sides out. If you don't have a serger, you can just sew a straight stitch and zig zag the edge if you want to prevent future fraying.

Serge right sides together.

Create your straps.

Create your straps.   Create your straps.

Attach strap to top of grocery bag holder. I just did a straight stitch across, making sure to reinforce by back stitching over the strap.

Sew handle on.

Add snaps. If you don't have snaps, you could just sew the loop completely to the holder.

Add snap to the handle for the grocery bag holder.

On the bottom of the holder, turn over the edge and sew a straight stitch around the holder. This creates a casing for your elastic. Make sure you leave a small opening. 

Sew casing for the grocery bag holder.

I used a safety pin to feed my elastic through the casing. Once it was all the way around the bottom of the holder and the elastic was nice and scrunched up, I sewed the elastic to itself. 

Add elastic to the grocery bag holder.

 Sew closed the casing.

The finished products came out super pretty... I love them.
