Creating a custom bag

What is your favourite part of designing something new?

Custom Wheelchair Bag



I love the problem solving aspect to a new creation.  This week I have made a bag for a wheelchair user, who lives in a care home – the brief was to hold a packet of tissues, a comb and a lipstick. My first ever wheelchair bag:)

I took a while pondering the design, mulling it over. Basically I was not satisfied with the idea of a box of tissues at the bottom of a bag, just not very accessible for someone with limitations.

Finally the light bulb moment came – velcro straps on a tissue box fabric cover, with a side pocket for comb and lipstick. Lets just hope it works!

The  logical approach would be to buy a box of tissues, as the reference point for size of bag. Alternatively one can always refer to you tube, and then face the consequences when it dawns on you the you tube video refers to a standard tissue box for a different country!

Without measurement for a wheelchair arm, to height of the top of the wheel it is guess work, but I am delighted with the result:) Lets hope it works for Joan:)

When I started this creative journey it did not cross my mind that there would be some maths, analyzing, logical thinking involved as I gained confidence and started creating & adapting patterns. I enjoy it:) Whats you favourite part of making and creating?

As usual I am popping over to Handmade Harbour to check out what other people have been making:) Have a good week:)
