DIY Walker Caddy FREE sewing pattern

Here is an absolutely fabulous FREE sewing pattern and tutorial showing you how to make this super-useful DIY Walker Caddy.

The talented and generous designer, Sew Can She, says you can easily carry everything you need with you on your walker! This free sewing pattern for a clever and functional walker caddy will work with any walker because the straps have generous strips of velcro to make them adjustable. The amazing cup holder holds a cup up to 20 oz. Remember to use fabrics that the recipient will love so she or he will use it with pride!

There are exterior pockets on both sides that you can divide how you like. The designer divided the pocket on one side in half and left the other pocket whole so it would fit a book or iPad.

There are also interior slip pockets on one side, which you could easily double if you want interior pockets on both sides.

This caddy attaches to the front bar of a waker using two 2’’ wide straps that have nice big pieces of velcro.

There are 1″ wide side straps that loop through rectangular rings and are secured with more velcro. These side straps keep everything totally secure!

The designer used a foam stabilizer (ByAnnie Soft and Stable) because she loves how beautiful and sturdy it makes bag and organizer projects like this. If you prefer, fusible fleece or quilt batting may be used instead but the caddy will not be as sturdy.

Sizing info:
The approximate dimensions of the caddy are 14’’ wide and 8’’ tall (not including the straps).

Skill level:
This is an intermediate-level sewing project.

What you will need to make a DIY Walker Caddy:-

  • 2-yards of fabric total. More fabric would be needed if you use a directional print. Fat quarters or yardage will work. The designer used:
    • I/4 yard white floral print for the exterior caddy,
    • 1/4 yard peach print for the caddy lining,
    • 1/4 yard navy print for the pocket exteriors,
    • 1/4 yard green print for the pocket linings,
    • 1/4 yard green floral for making the bias binding,
    • 3/4 yard solid peach fabric for my straps, additional binding, and interior pocket.
  • 1/2 yard of 60’’ wide foam stabilizer (such as ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable),
  • 1/2 yard medium weight woven stabilizer (such as Pellon Shape Flex SF101),
  • Two rectangular rings with a 1’’ opening,
  • 6’’ length of 1’’ wide hook and loop tape (velcro),
  • 4’’ length of 2’’ wide sew-in hook and loop tape (velcro),
  • Fabric marking tools such as chalk and/or a Frixion pen,
  • Basting spray (such as SpraynBond),
  • Creative Grids Curved Corner Ruler or circle template with a 2 1/2’’ radius,
  • Basic sewing supplies,
  • A sewing machine.
