    A Cute, Useful Walker Bag

    I have several back, hip and spine issues. Some days I feel fine and can get away without using any assistance (though I usually pay for it later), other days I need a cane and on really bad days, like today, I need a walker. I need a way to carry things around with me, though. I would need it to be able to come off for the days it can fold up. So, yesterday I asked for patterns and someone suggested I google for a pattern and I found this. Very helpful and it went together in an afternoon!

    I didn't take a photo of the back of the walker bag (my hip was hurting too much), but there's a large center section to the bag, two front pockets (shown) and three back pockets. The first photo shows it behind the bar, which is easier for me, and the second photo shows it in front of the bar so you can see the bag better. Thanks for looking!

    The fabric colors are so fresh and bright. I hadn't seen this particular pattern before, but the item should be nicely stabilized with the horizontal straps. This is a very nice bag. Thank you for sharing with us. I hope you are feeling more comfortable....

    It turned out really nice. Looks very useful as well as attractive.
    I use a cane & love that they now have ones that are attractive.
