I am temporarily having to use a walker and wanted to cushion the hand grips. I took a couple strips of foam tubing used to wrap pipes and covered them with socks that have the rubber/vinyl grips on the bottom. I wrapped the hand rest of my walker with them and tightened plastic pull ties on each end for security. They work great as cushions. When the socks get dirty, I cut the plastic strips and put on a clean pair of socks! (I tried using the foam tubing without the socks but it rubbed off on my hands turning them black).
Source: The source is my own idea because my hands were getting sore from the weight I am having to put on the walker.

Sounds like you figured out a solution for your need. That's great. I love it when we are able to work things out. There are so many things out there we can use instead of running to the store and purchasing it.
