Well I think there needs to be a "necessity is the mother of invention" challenge. This would definitely fit the bill!

very creative Wink
and i think it would work perfect for a hot water bag? i don't know how do yoyu call them in english Tongue
in Chile we say "guatero", and they have the same shape as your bag
maybe you could share a little pattern or tut.

i wish you a speedy speed recovery Wink

Thanks for the well wishes! I'll be getting put back together sometime late in May or early June. I see my surgeon tomorrow for tests to find out when for sure.

Actually, when I was trying to figure out how to make this, I started by looking through the cozy/cover pages on knittingpatterncentral.com. There are a whole bunch of hot water bottle cozy patterns on there. My ostomy bag cover looks similar, but it has a hole on the back which corresponds to the hole in the ostomy bag in the picture. Also, I don't think a hot water bottle would fit in my bag cover because the hole in the ... I guess you could call it the neck of the cover is too small. You'd need buttons or something.

Thats a good idea. My friend got blown up in Iraq and he had to have one of these for 6 months... I highly doubt he would ever wear one though... Hes just a guy though... but i think its cute! and a good way to make something not so pleasant, cute!

My mom had her perm. illie twenty plus years ago.  She had these covers in every color and pattern of fabric she could get.  Mom would even match them  to the outfit.  She liked them because the plastic against her skin would make her sweat esp. during the summer.  All of her were sewn.  I have never seen a knitted one.  Good Job.

Very cool. Did she make them herself or could you buy them somewhere? I wish someone had told me about them... I went through four and a half months without one before I finally bothered to make it, and now I only have about a month left!
