I moved to a small retirement village, where I had a neighbour who used a walker. I decided to make her a bag that could hang on the front of the walker, that she could use instead of a handbag. She often used the bus and it was easier for her getting on and off the bus if she didn’t have to juggle a handbag too. It was very successful. Then of course she was asked where she got it. I started making them seriously. They have been very popular. I am still making bags for walkers but now vary the fabrics I use.
This is a recent bag where I have used a wool blend for the main body. It adds weight but as the bag is not carried, that doesn’t matter.
