The simplest is often the best, that’s the idea behind this walker bag that is easy to make, yet just as practical as its more complex counterparts, thanks to its body made of home decor fabric that has a big, deep, and wide pocket, with a velcro strap that you wrap around the walker frame horizontally.

I hope you liked this roundup with wheelchair patterns and walker caddies. I can easily imagine them in different colors and will perhaps embroider the initial of the recipient just in case. It would be better if you use heavier duty fabric and heavy duty needle, or if you really want to use cotton fabrics, remember to interface them to make the bag more durable. Also, tell the recipient not to use it for heavy items as this will make their walker unbalanced and may even tip it over.
It doesn’t matter if you’re going to make these handy bags for your friends, family, or even complete strangers as s gift, they will love the thought and effort you put behind it. If you have suggestions on how to make these accessories even better, share your ideas with us in the comments.
