So I decided to make a bag holder out of plastic canvas.
I took one full sheet of plastic Canvas and cut a small square space out of the middle of the bottom part to be able to pull the bags out from the bottom.
Then I decided on the colors I wanted to use. I chose 3 colors, Maroon, Light blue and Dark blue
The pattern I used was a check pattern for the top
Using the maroon yarn:
Rows 1-6) *6 small diagonal stitches then skip 6 spaces * repeat across
Rows 7-12 ) * skip 6 spaces then 6 small diagonal stitches* repeat across
I repeated rows 1-12 4 times. This left me with some unworked spaces
I worked the first 4 rows together starting with a small one space stitch, increasing to a 5 space stitch
skipping the spaces marked sk and starting after the maroon square I repeated the pattern across (click on the pictures to get a larger look at the diagram)
Skiping the maroon square and the blue parts I repeated the pattern across.
I like to weave the yarn behind the blue so you see the pattern on both sides
For the next set of squares I did the dark blue increased to a six space stitch
And the light blue was only a 5 space stitch down to a one.
I repeated these 2 sets of square rows 3 times. At this point I was tired of that pattern and decided to use the dark blue to do long 12 space diagonal stitches across.
Then I finished up with lt blue diagonal stitches across the bottom and opposite stripes of lt. blue across the 12 space stitches.
This completes the front of the bag holder.
The owl was added later.
