Wheel Chair / Walker Tote Bags From My Recycled Bags - A Great Project!

While I was taking a look at the entries for today's Make It From Scratch blog carnival at Nini Makes, I found this great entry from Cindy at My Recycled Bags.

In honor of Veteran's Day, November 11, Cindy is crocheting these multipurpose wheelchair - walker tote bags from recycled plastic bags. They are very useful with velcro under the straps to attach to a wheelchair, walker or even a bed rail. Just wipe to clean and they are very durable. She made several of these for a her local VA hospital. It is an easy crocheted eco-friendly project and a very handy tote for someone in a wheelchair or using a walker. She includes free, easy to follow directions for making the bags.

As a sneak peek, here is another wheelchair - walker tote Cindy made crocheting with acrylic yarn. She will be posting the instructions very soon for those that want to use regular or even recycled yarn to create this tote bag.

These are super, Cindy! Thank you!
