DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable individuals with mobility disabilities to organize items at an armchair. Included in a chapter entitled “Living Room & Leisure Activities,” this article provides detailed instructions with illustrations for making a simple three-pocket caddy from a decorative dishtowel or hand towel. The towel is folded in half with the decorated sides together, and then one side is folded back so the hemmed edges line up with the half fold, creating the pockets. After pinning the edges of the pocket, sew through all layers of fabric along two edges and reinforce the top of the pocket. Sew two parallel lines from the top to the bottom of the pocket to create three pockets. The caddy can be pinned to the arm of the chair, or additional fabric can be added to be tucked between the arm and the cushion. MATERIALS: Decorative dishtowel or hand towel and extra fabric (optional). TOOLS: Sewing machine or needle and thread. SKILLS REQUIRED: Sewing. TITLE: Armchair Caddy. BOOK: Easy Things to Make to Make Things Easy: Simple Do-It-Yourself Home Modifications for Older People & Others with Physical Limitations. REF: Cambridge, Massachusetts: Brookline Books: p. 60. PAGES (including cover) 2. 1997.
