Crocheted plastic Bag Holder

(Added edgings on the pic !!)
This pattern formed in my mind when I had had enough of finding  plastic bags stuffed in a corner or  in bags around my house . Hope you guys enjoy it !!!!!

Plastic bag holder 

Materials : 

Worsted weight yarn in various colors ( I made mine in one color ,but you choose what colors to use )
Size H-5 crochet hook 
Tapestry needle 
hairband ( we will use this for the bottom part of the bag ; where u pull the bags out )
Thread and sewing needle

With yarn and hook make a slip knot and chain 35 and join with a slip stitch to the begging chain 

Row 1: chain 2 and half double crochet in the first chain , and in the rest of the chains . Join with slip stitch to the chain 2 at the beginning 

Row 2 :  Chain 2 and half double crochet in all the stitches in the row before , join with slip stitch to the beginning chain 2 

Repeat row 2 until the piece measures 50 centimeters 

Finish off the piece 

Now here is the tricky part : grab the hairband and put it in the inside of the piece 1 centimeter inside and with sewing needle and thread sew over the hairband ,but sew it so that the thread doesn't show on the outside . Stretch the hairband around the piece whilst sewing it so you get the hairband to fit 
Around the inside of the bag 

Weave in all ends and you are done !!!!
You can make any kind of color combination you want !!
