Completed Walker Tote

I finished Granny's walker tote I was telling you about yesterday. The pattern I chose worked perfectly and I am so happy with the end result! I can't wait to give it to her. The pattern came from here, in case you'd like to try it for yourself. The instructions were easy to follow. You do need basic sewing skills. It took me about three hours to complete. Two things I omitted from the pattern were the bottom ties and the middle button.
This was the first time I have ever used my machine to make a buttonhole. I was very pleased with the buttonhole foot and ease of use. I now have no fear of it for when I use it again! Here are a few pictures of the completed tote. I'll share a picture of it on Granny's walker when I give it to her.
Here is the front of it. The pattern called for pre-quilted material for the tote body but I just quilted up the body myself using my free-motion quilting foot. That way I could use the material I wanted and it is cheaper!
Here it is with some stuff in it to show how the pockets are set (three in the front). I like how it has a huge bag area in the middle for lots of things. This could be used as her purse so Granddaddy doesn't have to carry it around, ha!

And here is the back. It has two wider pockets on the outside.

Pretty cute, huh? What do you think?


  1. I am going through your blog from the beginning. You do wonderful work. I love the bag here fro your Granny. Very nice.

  2. Thank you so much! She loved it and it fits very nicely on her walker. I forgot to take pictures, of course!


I treasure your comments. I receive a blessing with each one. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
