Walker caddy

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How the cup holder turned out. I had a clear piece of thick plastic that came from a gift box cover so I used it for the inside of the cup holder to keep it sturdy. She had a cup that she always used so I didn't have to worry about making the holder versatile. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The cup holder was a challenge, maybe because I'm a beginner...take your time and try not to get frustrated.

What you will need

  • Material
  • velcro
  • plastic.

Q&A with LisaSaved1

Hello. I use a walker myself. I don't sew, but I would like to use your ideas in crocheting one for my walker. Do you have a pattern that you offer for this project. I could use the measurements from your pattern. I really like the inside pockets (the ones that face you when you are walking. I wanted to tell you what a great project this is and how much these caddies are appreciated by nursing homes. I was in a nursing home for a while and these make their lives so much easier. I have crocheted a couple of simple ones and donated them to the nursing home that I stayed at. Thanks again for any help you can give me with this project. Jeanine

I don't have a pattern, sorry. I had an extra walker of hers for a while and I just worked off that. I just did some guessing for the most part. It turned out really well and I was thinking that her daughter would give it back to me when she died but she sold it on a garage sale, otherwise I would have been able to give you more information from that. I made one for my grandma too and didn't get that back. One of these days I will try it again so that I can help a few more people out, I did think about the nursing homes :)

This is so good. I have been looking for a pattern or a picture so I could make on for a friend. On the 2nd and the 3rd pitures. Is the front sewed on to the back. I need one to also hold some books for her.
LisaSaved1 answered:
I'm not sure what you are asking. It's kind of like a saddle, it's flopped over the bar and Velcro attaches them together to keep things from slidding around. Hope that helps!
