My mother is completely bed bound these days, except for being transported to dialysis. Its so hard for her to keep up with her things. Its a pain to try to call and know the reason she doesn't answer is because she can't reach the phone.
So, I made this little pouch with velcro tabs that will hang on her "halo" bed rail. The pocket in the front can hold prayer cards, church bulletins, etc. The bigger pouch will hold her glasses, remote control, cordless phone, a tiny pair of blunt end scissors and a very small flashlight.
She only has use of her right hand, so I put it on the left side of the bed so she can reach over to get items from the pouch.
This one was a trial and error pouch. I have ideas for a better one and have just the right fabric in mind. I don't have time today to show you, but tomorrow I have some interesting fabric sources to show you!
