What a wickedly awesome perk it up for the tired looking crutches. Hope you are mending fast.
I would love for you to show this off at my Wickedly Crafty Saturdays!
This is such a great idea! I hated using my crutches, sooo boring and grey, next time I will definitely be jazzing them up!
Oh and I really hope your mending well!
Great crutches! No chance of muddling them up with someone else’s when you go to the clinic for a check-up!
Hope you’re on the mend now and can soon put the crutches back in the garage for good!
Hehe that’s so awesome! Trust the crafty people to say, “hey I should be taking it easy and healing, but something needs to be done about these crutches. They’re too boring!”
Love it! 😀
I covered the top pad and the handle( or whatever you call the part you hold with your hands) with fabric on my crutches because the foam rubbed under my arms – ow! I did the hand part because rubbing on the foam gave me blisters. The fabric pads changed all that for the better.
Hope you are feeling better soon!
I got a pair of Mobilegs crutches earlier this year when I had surgery. My mom got me some butterfly skins which wrap the whole crutch. They were cool.
Any suggestions for sprucing up a walker? Haha! I’m not even allowed crutches for a few weeks (I had hip surgery) and what young mama wants an ugly walker? I think maybe I can use your idea to make covers for the walker handles (and add the batting for extra padding). Thanks for sharing and I hope are mending quickly!
This was awesome to find. I skipped the first sewing part and the ironing. I just folded over the fabric, used your advice to remember to not make it too narrow! Got some 1/2 inch foam (scrap section)from the fabric store, found a pillow on clearance for $4 and got some nonsissy walking dead fabric 25% off. Plus they had a 20% off coupon by text. Perfect timing for me to find your post and sales! My husband broke his foot and refused to use his crutches after one day because of the way they felt. Thank you SO MUCH for this idea. I used the foam directly under the fabric to keep a smooth appearance. Then mushed in some stuffing from the pillow between the crutch and foam. Closed it with velcro like yours. I used the kind that has self stick, ya’ll don’t judge lol, I don’t have a machine and my 16 month old was grabbing everything. I didn’t get to the handle part yet…maybe after the kids are in bed
I’m so happy you were able to make it work for you! No judging here! Whatever it takes to make those crutches more comfortable! LOL
You could even try adding a little purse lower down the crutches as your hands wont be free for carrying a bag.
