The idea was to make her a small bag that will hang across her body and hold her Jitterbug phone. The Jitterbug is a flip phone but has an emergency call button on the outside.
Should she fall again, the cross-body bag will hold the phone close enought for her reach it, and she won't even have to take the phone out to make the call.
I've worked on this small bag a few times using Richard's flip phone as my model. Last weekend I completed the bag and realized that it was much too long, so I cut it down.

My only concern is that if the bag is not quite the correct size, she'll just use it anyway. Such a sweet lady, my friend. It might be difficult to convince her to tell me if the bag needs any more adjustments. Of course, I have the safety issue to fall back on...if I need it.

Finished or Not Friday @ Busy Hand Quilts
If this particular one doesn't work, I think it will be time to start with fresh fabric. Don't you?
