Tarn Walker Bag



During the summer I visited my grandma for a few days (she lives far from me).  She uses a walker and a walker bag (for the phone, remote, etc.).  She said that her walker bag was to light weight for her.  She wanted something with more weight to it.  Thats when I said a silent thank you to Cindy from myrecycle bags.com  for creating a wonderful walker bag pattern.  Her pattern calls for 2 skeins of tarn (t-shirt yarn).  I ended up using 3 skeins, because 2 of my skeins were from children's shirts.  The light blue tarn was from an extra large shirt.  This is a very easy and fast pattern to crochet.  The only real change that I made was chaining 2 stitches for the button hole instead of one.  The buttons also came from my stash (thankfully I had some blue ones).  I love this bag!  It is so pretty, and it is a nice size.  I'm going to give it to my grandma for Christmas.  I hope that she likes it.
