Sew a hanging cup colder to put on a walker or a stroller
So in addition to the walker caddy tutorial, I also made a velcro-on hanging cup holder tutorial to share with you. This is great for Granny’s walker, but could also easily work for a stroller missing a cup holder.
- Two fabrics – one a sturdier fabric like denim or canvas and one a lightweight fabric like quilting cotton
- Sew on velcro
Trace out a circle that’s as big you want the holder to be, then add at least a 1/4″ seam allowance. Measure around the circle. Cut a rectangle piece that is the same length as the circumference of the circle plus a seam allowance. You want it to be at least 2/3 of the height of the cup tall. Sew the rectangle into a tube, then pin it to the circle around the bottom. Stitch.
Repeat with the lining fabric, so you have two cup shapes. Iron the top edge of each to the wrong side 1/2″. With the sturdier main fabric right side out and the lining fabric wrong side out, place the lining inside the main fabric.
Cut two rectangles for the hang tab – mine were 2″ x 5″. Sew them around both long and one short side, right sides together. Turn the tab right side out, press, and sandwich between the lining and main fabric cups. Topstitch around the top edge, securing the tab and closing all raw edges inside.
Add sew on velcro to the tab and the side of the cup. Stitch in place and you’re done!
PS – this is super similar to how I made my Toy Storage Buckets, and that post has more pictures of the process that may help you.
