I was wondering if anyone has a pattern for a tote bag for a walker. If so, would you share with me.

Thanks.

HI, I also printed out those instructions for the walker tote thinking I could use it in the near future. I have a couple of friends that use walkers. Marge

From working in a long term care center I have a few ideas on what might be a little more practical for the walker bag. use snaps instead of velcro ore hook and loop system. snaps seem to last longer. measure items the person may carry to know sizes for pockets. If the pockets are too big things fall out. Elastic loops can be used to hold pen, glasses, The quilted ones are so much prettier than just fabric.

My grandson made a bunch of these from blue jeans. I used one on my walker and it was great to have so many pockets to put things in.
We did them at a workshop he conducted for his Eagle Scout award.
Here's how they were done:
Cut off legs just below the crotch line. Turn jeans wrong side out and sew across the bottom.
Work buttonholes on each side of the front waist band.
Make straps from one of the jean legs. (We sewed them right sides together and then turned them, but one could do them as "raw edge" finish and it would be much easier.)
Sew straps to back, approximately in line with the buttons.
Button the bag to your walker and off you go. I'm attaching a picture of the finished product. We did like men's & boy's jeans the best--The women's lower cut jeans didn't have enough pockets and did not make a very deep bag.
