A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

I have been using up my fabric stash.....in order to buy some more wonderful fabrics !!  It never ends for us quilters / sewers !
Have wanted to do something for our community....so went searching for a pattern to make walker caddies.  There were many to chose from, but I liked this one. The only thing I changed was the buttons. Used velcro instead.  Took some to one nursing home a couple weeks ago, am finishing up more to take.  They are fun and easy to make.
I like this style because it stabilizes the pouch with the tabs around the legs.  While recovering  from my reconstructive foot surgery last year, I had to use a walker and hop on one leg for two months !  What an ordeal.  Just before my surgery I quickly threw together a bag to hang on my walker.  Well after only a few days it was surmised fast, that a big bag would be better.  Then the darn thing would swing back and forth with whatever I had stashed in it.  
This bag for the nursing homes has the center pocket and two pockets on either side. Enough storage and "doesn't swing out."  :)   That is a good thing.
