    Fast and Easy...

    http://quiltinglibrary.blogspot.com/...o-made_05.html



    I used walker bag # 5 for my original pattern.



    You will note the pattern calls for " sturdy fabric" . I had a light wt cotton blend fabric.

    So I twice as many of all pattern pieces.



    For the 13x8 pockets, I sandwiched some light wt stabilizer between layers of the pocket fabric and lightly quilted it. I did this for both pockets. I added a band of color to the top edges, as binding. ( no need to bind sides or bottom)



    The main body piece , ( 24 x 13) I also cut 2



    Once I had all my pieces quilted, and embellished ( in my case, I used my emb machine)



    I then sandwiched everything.I'll list as I laid the layers down>



    1 light wt stabiler if desired ( 24x 13)

    1 main body ( 24x13)

    place pockets at each end with tops facing towards center

    1 main body ( 24x13)



    then I stitch all the way around , leaving a 4 inch or so area open, between the pockets was easist.



    Turn right side out, taking care to turn both pockets to the same side ( easily fixed if u get one on one side and one on the other.. just flip it to the other side)



    I chose to double stitch on of the pockets down the middle to form 2 small pockets



    the other pocket I left open, enabling a newspaper or magazine to carried.



    Don't forget to top stitch the area between the pockets , catching the open seam area to completely close ur seams.



    Again , the pattern called for velcro, I do not feel velcro holds up well in the long run so I used heavy no sew snaps. One on each side about the pocket....as picktured.



    tada!!!!! u have a walker bag!

    hope this is clearer than mud!!

    Thanks for the timely post of the walker bag tutorial. I will be having spinal surgery in the very near future and I am going to construct one of these for my walker. I would like to heal to the point that i can make some of these for others. Please remember me in your prayers. I am concerned about the surgery. Surgery last year was failed....going to try again.
