This clever design helps you to wrangle all those plastic grocery bags, dispense them neatly for whatever upcycle use you may have! I use this plastic grocery bag dispenser near my kitty’s litter box so I always have bags on hand!

  1. I must say you have high quality posts here. Your blog
    should go viral. You need initial boost only. How to get it?
    Search for: Etorofer’s strategies

  2. I am not a very experienced crocheter and I am trying this pattern. I’m only on Round 5 and I’ve run into a problem & am stuck. I am completely confuse on the entire round 5. Can you please explain or let me know if there is a tutorial anywhere that I can use to get past this round?

    1. April,
      Here is a link to the description of the stitch above. There is written directions and a video tutorial below that. In Drew’s patter, you are placing the stitches in the chain 3 spaces instead of a single chain stitch. Hope it helps. ?
