Charity Pattern- Basic Walker Bag

My grandma has recently had knee surgery and is forced to have a walker. She is none to happy about it, by the way, but she is being a good sport none the less. She needs a bag for her walker so she can keep her phone and other necessities handy so I totally said I would make her one.

Without further ado, I present the Basic Walker Bag. It's a simple BASIC design that will work great for men and women. A must in charity projects. It will fit most walkers on the front or side. Feel free to make many for your local nursing homes and veterans programs.
