Now here’s a clever idea – a plastic bag holder that neatly stores your plastic bags and acts as a plastic bag dispenser. Aleata Timmers, owner of HappyBullFrog, manufactures plastic bag holders from upcycled fabric. Aleata uses blue jeans, cargo pants, plaid shirts, and some have pockets to store batteries or whatever fits.

This bag holder is made from thick plush upcycled upholstery squares that’s stitched together. The top has a drawstring to seal the bags. The bottom is pulled together with elastic so you can remove bags when you need them. These bags are also great to store washcloths or rags. If you are interested in this item – check this product out on Etsy.
