DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide a means for individuals who use walkers to carry items. . Included in a chapter entitled "Housekeeping & Getting Around," this article provides detailed instructions with illustrations for making a simple three-pocket caddy from a decorative dishtowel or hand towel. The towel is folded in half with the decorated sides together, and then one side is folded back so the hemmed edges line up with the half fold, creating the pockets. After pinning the edges of the pocket, sew through all layers of fabric along two edges and reinforce the top of the pocket. Sew two parallel lines from the top to the bottom of the pocket to create three pockets. The caddy can be pinned to the walker, fastened with sew-on Velcro tape, or buttonholes can be added and buttons sewn on for fastening. MATERIALS: Decorative dishtowel or hand towel and safety pins, sew-on Velcro, or buttons. TOOLS: Sewing machine or needle and thread. SKILLS: Sewing. TITLE: Walker Accessories.
