Grocery Bag Dispenser

One of my biggest pet peeves is having a cabinet stuffed with assorted grocery bags. Every time I open that specific cabinet all of the bags come tumbling out on to the kitchen floor and I have to spend time stuffing them back in. So for weeks I've been thinking about how I can create a grocery bag dispenser with the leftover green fabric from my other DIY project

I've been wanting to try some stenciling, as inspired by many of the DesignSponge DIY projects. So here was my first attempt. 

Sewing the dispenser was actually quite easy. It was the stenciling that was more difficult given the ridges on this canvas fabric. I used the tip of my scissors to smooth out the edges of the stencil. I think it worked out just fine. 

No more messy cabinets for me!
