My pastor's wife fell last week and broke her leg. The same leg she had knee surgery on a year ago. :-( While at her house, delivering a meal, her phone went off...inside her shirt. She laughed and pulled it from her shirt, explaining she had no where to keep it on her because she couldn't carry it in her hands while using crutches and with her leg brace, jeans were out so she had no pockets. So, I was thinking of trying to make her a bag that would hang around her neck, but wouldn't be too heavy or cumbersome.
I posted a thread yesterday, asking for bag ideas. Someone mentioned the "Bare Essentials Bag" and that reminded me that I have a similar bag pattern. So, this morning I whipped one up. They really are a 30 minute project and I love how it came out. It has a large, back pocket (the silver one) for her cell phone and three inner pockets for other things, like health insurance cards or money for when she needs to go out to the doctor. Thanks for looking!
