This is a very easy project to make. The first thing I want to caution you on is NOT to use regular yarn! It stretches all out of shape and where you made one that is maybe 20 inches from your shoulder down, it'll wind up down by your knees from stretching! Plus it's a lot hotter to carry in the summer time. Get some cotton yarn to meke this out of and you'll be a lot happier with it. If you'll contact me I'll be happy to send the pattern I made up for mine. The pattern is adjustable to whatever size you want it to be.

Materials:
Cotton yarn (Lily's Sugar & Cream is what I used)
Size F crochet hook

Instructions:
Bag sides (make 2:
Row 1: Ch 46. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. (45 sc) (You can adjust the width by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches across.
Row 2: Sc in back loop only of each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Rep Row 2 till the length you want the bag to be. Fasten off after last row.
Whip stitch the 2 sides together on 3 sides, leaving the top open.

Strap:
Row 1: Ch 11 (or as many as you want the width of the strap to be, plus 1).
Row 2: Sc in back loops only of each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Rep Row 2 till the length you want the strap to be. Fasten off after last row.

Sl st strap to each side of the bag. I sl st-d across 2 times on each side to make sure it was extra secure.

If you want the top to close, you can do one of two things:

*Using sewing thread, slip stitch a heavy duty zipper in place.
*Using sewing thread, slip stitch a strip of Velcro on either side.
Or you can come up with your own method of closing it. Here is one method I've used:
When making the sides, I made one side longer than the other. That way I could fold it over as a flap. Then you could either leave it like this, or you could sew on a button on the short side, then create a button hole on the long side using ch st.

To make it so it doesn't swing so much on a walker you could simply tie the bottom 2 corners to the legs using whatever you wanted to use--matching yarn, shoe laces, string, etc.
