Fast and super easy, this Granny Plastic Bag Dispenser is a practical crochet project for storing plastic bags.
Using Caron Cotton Cakes, the colour shown is called Driftwood. The dispenser is 11" long without a hanging loop and approximately 4" in diameter.
Put it in the closet, hang it on the stair railing or put it close to the door so you don't forget to take your bags. For quick access.
