Most of my christmas sewing consisted of these
knapsacks, but I also made one other item for my Grandma Helen's walker. She has an Invacare Rollator (blue) and always has trouble getting her stuff out of the basket on the bottom.
Here it is:
She wanted room for four specific things: her glasses, her hearing aids, her blood glucose reader, and Kleenexes.
The top pocket is the glasses pocket. It has a "homemade with love" tag on it so she knows I made it
The next pocket down, slightly smaller, is the hearing aid one. I didn't have any sizes to work with so I just guessed
Then comes the gigantor blood glucose reader pocket. I really
didn't know how big that was, so I really
guessed. It came out so big that I had to add some snaps to keep it closed
. I hope it works!
And lastly is the Kleenex dispenser. There is Velcro tape on the back to hold a flat box and the Kleenexes are dispensed through a slit on the front. It was a lot easier to make than it looks.
The bag has three loops that Velcro over the backrest of the walker and two straps on the bottom to attach to the seat bar, to hold it steady. My grandma loves paisley, but the pockets were kind of hard to see against the main piece, so I used blue binding tape to outline the edges of everything and make it look finished. It measures 10" tall (w/o straps) x 13" wide x 4" deep if you count the Kleenex box.
One last picture:
C&C is welcomed and encouraged! I'll be putting a picture up of it on the walker once I get it to her. What do you think?
