Surgery on my foot has left me on crutches for the next two months. Finding them to be annoying for quick trips across the room, I started crawling around, until my knees got raw from the carpet. Solution! Practical and stylish. I might keep wearing them once I'm off the crutches as a weird accessory or when I'm in the garden. They're made from the legs of a cat suit that has long since been trashed, folded a few times for padding and patched with green upholstry fabric scraps. My knees are eternally grateful.


Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

very clever!! I have a little mat that I kneel on when I garden, otherwise I would use that idea for sure.  Great job!

1. I love that you made these as you probably couldn't find them for what you need them for even if you wanted to buy them.
2. I love that you admitted to crawling around because it's easier. My boyfriend broke his toe a while back and it hurt to walk on it really bad for a while. I came home from work early one day and caught him crawling to the bathroom. Yeah... he was mortified. Made sense to me but he was totally embarrassed.

Craft till it hurts.
