Crutch Baggie

I remembered how difficult it was to carry a cup of tea while using crutches, so I made Paul a little bag to attach to his crutch, and gave him a nice sealed mug for his coffee. Well, fortunately, he used the crutches for about a two days and graduated to a cane, but I’ll put a picture here anyway! You can buy them online here, but it was easier for me to make one (especially since it was hardly used).

We also looked up crutch tips for rain and snow. We didn’t need them, but it is nice to know they exist!

Here’s a picture of my crutch baggie

The Ultimately Useless Crutch Bag

For someone who is stuck using crutches for a while, especially if they are non-weight-bearing, it might be a useful idea!

    Great idea of the sealed up coffee cup. I had visions of him putting his tea in a cup and saucer and then in his bag. It wouldn’t work too well. How about a sealed wine glass?

      Better to keep off crutches!

    Lucky for Paul to have his own hand-made bag… now you can raffle it off to a blog reader in need…not me, please!

    Is the bag made from a Kikoi… the East African sarong worn instead of underwear by Swahili fishermen? Very cool way to recycle undies!

      No, a shirt sleeve! If I had a Kikoi, I wouldn’t cut it up! But it’s neat material, isn’t it?
