|This is what a foley bag looks like...more or less. |
It's not really very attractive, and when it has urine in it, it's even less so.
Thus the need for "P" Bags.
here are my dimensions:
2 pieces of fabric for exterior 12 3/4 x 14 3/4
2 pieces of fabric for lining (same as above)
2 pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing for exterior (same size as above)
Pockets are about 6 1/2 x 7 - I made one pocket for each side - each pocket has two pieces of fabric sewn right sides together around the sides and bottom, then turned right side out - top stitch the top closed and then top stitch the whole thing down onto the bag exterior (before adding lining!).
Strap material...sorry, I didn't measure this one either...I'm guessing I used about a yard(ish)
I made a third bag - but since it's all white, it really didn't photograph well. I made it in the messenger bag style, but with a shorter flap. All three bags have a matching tube cover - I was hoping to just make long tubes of fabric to go over them, but alas that won't work in this situation, so I ended up cutting long rectangles of fabric that were just longer than the tubes, hemming each short end (so they end up being the same length as the tubes), then hemming the long edges by turning them twice. I hemmed one long edge on one side, then the other long edge on the opposite side. I then added small (less than 1 inch) rectangles of velcro about every four or five inches. Tedious...you betcha, but I think it will work.
