To attach: Weave the drawstring through 1st row of dc on top of the bag holder body. I weaved the string behind one dc post, skipped three dc, and then weaved the string behind another dc post. You can weave the drawstring any way you would like.

Hanging Loop
Rnd 1) Attach yarn to top of bag holder body, ch 5, sl st to bag holder body, fasten off.
I crocheted a custom hanger for my grocery bag holder. I wanted to hang from a towel bar and wanted to be able to easily detached the holder from the bar. You can use a variety of ways to hang your holder. What you decide to use depends on where you are going to use it. You can attach another hair band, a metal or plastic loop, or an old key ring.
