My step-mom broke her hip, and has to use a walker for several weeks, while she heals.  She asked if I could make a bag to attach to her walker, and this is what I came up with.  I don't live near her, so I couldn't take a photo of it *on* the walker, so my towel bar will have to do!

The top straps fasten with magnetic snaps.  The ribbons are to tie to the side legs of the walker, so the bag won't swing back and forth, and whack her in the legs.  There are 4 pockets on the bag, 2 on each side, for holding various things you need/use in a day (cell phone, newspaper, mail, pens, wallet, etc.).  It measures 16 inches by 12 inches, (measurement is not including the top straps)

Here's a closer view of the pockets on one side of the bag.

What a great idea!  I imagine with her walker, she doesn't want to lug a purse around, so that was very sweet of you.  You could probably make some of these to attach to baby strollers as well.

Wow, what a fantastic idea!  I have made "walker" bags in the past, but I was never smart enough to put something on to tie to the legs so the bag doesn't flop around.  Great job and what a sweet thing for you to make!  Grin
