Anyway, my mom recently randomly dislocated her hip. Way randomly, she was just doing her hair, she didn't fall or anything, it just dislocated. (the funny part, if you can say that, is that it happened while she was visiting my sister, perhaps the least medical person ever) Seeing as my mom is now back with a walker, I thought a new walker bag was in order.
Thankfully I don't have a walker for the full photo op, but I do have a banister.
I used what I now know are called parachute buckles. They are the little buckles on grocery cart seat belts. It's what I used on her last bag and they are doing the job well, so why mess with it. I made the straps adjustable in case she wants to cinch it up higher.
I included two pockets this time. One on the outside, one on the inside; both facing the same way so they are walker accessible.
The bag is 13x10x4 and has a cardboard base insert for stability.
And what fun is there sending an empty bag? We put together a few favorite candies, pictures of the kids, and I made her a new case for her ereader.
My mom and I were both early adapters to the Barnes and Noble nook. Seriously, it's love. But it means our nooks are bigger than current models and, twist my arm, I have to make us cases. I made my mom's last case like a purse, it was cute but not maybe as protective as it ought to be when in a walker bag. So I solved that.
Now, if you happen to be Jessica Tonnies, avert your eyes. And if you happen to know Jessica, don't you dare tell her what I did. She will disown me.
Now that she's all set up, again, my mom will be all set to show off at the orthopedists office, again.
