Truth is they still really aren't convenient...but they are way better. Soon after I gave the
se babies a cute makeover I realized they also needed to be more functional.
Basically I just wanted a way to hold my cell phone while I was tottering around the house because what kept happening (over and over again) was that the mister would run out to do errands and would call to make sure I was doing ok while he was out. But since my knee was swollen and hurting I'd be wearing yoga pants or pajama pants (both of which have no pockets) and would miss the calls. By the time I'd get back to the phone he'd be starting to worry and I had twice as much unessesary crutching around.
Long story short- I needed a crutch pocket!
I don't know why I only feel like sewing while I'm sick or injured but it's definitely a theme with me. This time thought I decided to forgo using the machine and opted to sew my handy dandy pocket by hand.
I'm actually really happy with how it came out. It holds a few essentials and seriously makes the crutches about a thousand times better.
My knee is getting better- in fact I only need the crutches some of the time now. If I've iced and rested my knee I can do a bit of limping around without them. And tomorrow I have my first PT appointment so soon I think I'll be back to my regularly planned March crafting.
Thanks for all the nice comments on my first crafty crutch post wishing me well! : )
