A standard roll of "poop bags" will fit snugly inside. Each roll of bags will have a sticker that holds it closed. Leave this sticker in place until after you place the roll inside the crochet, lining up the sticker with the hole in the side. IT WILL BE A TIGHT FIT, but will loosen up as you use the bags. when you near the end of the roll it may try to slip out the side hole, just stick it back in :D
If you have trouble getting the bag roll to feed through the hole, you can just pull the bags through the drawstring opening!!
