Feed The Puppy - Plastic Bag Holder - Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I designed this Plastic Bag Holder
 because I needed one!

Feed The Puppy-
Stuff him with your plastic bags!

Isn't he Bright and Cute.
Well, I am sure we all have
 plastic bags  from shopping, 
we do not want to throw them out, 
we want to reuse them. 
But where do we store them.
In a bag holder, of course! 

This Bag holder is very stretchy
 and will hold bunches of them!
