Dog Poop Waste Bag Holder

Thank you to my Grandparents for giving me the idea for this project! It was a challenge, but a lot of fun. I have to say, I never thought I would be making a tutorial that had anything to do with dog poop, but here it is 🙂

I have two dogs and they always…always…do their business while we are out and about. As a result, I have to carry these with me every time we go for a walk. Having a case to store the bags in is a must.

The pattern and instructions provide two different styles for the bag.

One is a loop handle which can be attached to the leash using Velcro, snaps, buttons, or more. This is a really cute style and is the typical style for waste bag holders.

The other is a simple drawstring bag. Both options have a slit in the side to allow for easy removal of the plastic bags.

This project is a bit challenging. I would say 6/10. Primarily because it is so small. Special tools can help, such as the Purple Thang to protect your fingers, and a detail pressing tool to reach the small areas.

DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS:

One-Tie Face Mask & Case in Action

I had a few requests for shots of the face mask in action! Here you go 🙂

I have to say, while I have face masks with elastic and with ties, I definitely prefer the ties! I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the feel of the elastic rubbing against my ears. While sewing the ties is not my favorite thing to do, I do appreciate the comfort it brings verses the elastic. The tie in the back also allows me to adjust the fit to a snugness that works for me. I also find it much more comfortable without interfacing.

I made my ear ties, 0.5 inch longer than the elastic suggestion in the pattern, but you can adjust to your preference.

I was worried originally that the mask might slide a lot with just the single tie, but I haven’t found it a problem. I have even worn it out for walks on windy days with no issues! And when you’re not using the mask for a moment, it hangs easily around your neck.1img_7136sm

I also use my little case for my mask absolutely all the time! First, I loved the cat print shown above. Second, I have one attached to my purse, so I literally don’t leave home without it.

I highly recommend the little case for convenience. Here is the free pattern.
