This is great, I love it. I will be making this soon.
I was wondering how long this was supposed to be. I love the pattern! I made one but it seems fairly short.
Ha you can make it longer if you need it longer. This is wider than most plastic bag dispensers and since I used a large hook at stretches out really well. It seems I can fit endless bags into it 🙂
Yea I added a few rounds to it. I love it! Can’t wait to make more things with your pattens! I love them all!
Great! 😀 I would love to see! You can msg me or post on my fb wall anytime! https://www.facebook.com/stitch11page

I just wanted to tell you I am trying to find projects to use plarn (plastic bag yarn) with. This project looks perfect –and even funny.
I am also looking at the toy hammock. It might also be good for the ever populated bathtub toys population. I will try to send you a picture when they are finished! Wish me luck! Joanne
Will love to see when you are finished. Those are both patterns from when I first started writing 🙂 I love that they are still being used <3
Hi. I was trying to use the cleanprint option to print this out and the picture isn’t attached and it cuts off the drawstring part. Is there any other way to print just this pattern but with this included? Thanks.
