No-Sew No-Glue Plastic Bag Dispenser


No-Sew No-Glue Plastic Bag Dispenser

To make a simple dispenser for your plastic grocery bags, all you need is:

  • An old t-shirt
  • A shoelace
  • A hanger
  • A pair of scissors

Step 1:

Cut the Shirt

First, make sure that the bottom hem of the shirt is not sealed together (so you can put the shoelace in).

Then, cut two slits in the hem; one at the front and one at the back.

Step 2:

Slide in the Shoelace

Pull the shoelace through half of the hem to create a drawstring. If you don't know how to do this, look up "how to restring a hoodie" on YouTube.

Step 3:

Finishing the Drawstring

Pull the shoelace tight on that half and tie it off. Pull the loose end through the other half of the hem.

Untie the knot, and then pull both loose ends so they are equal lengths.

Step 4:


Now you can hang up the t-shirt anywhere and use your dispenser. Plastic bags can be inserted through the collar or sleeves.
