Dog walking – Take one dog… and the rest
I don’t know about you, but the amount of accessories that I need when I’m walking dogs is a source of constant amazement. Treats, poo bags, more treats, potential cake money (that’s for me, not the dogs, they have to bring their own money if they want cake), keys as well as now the dirigor hand sansisator and face mask (and face mask pouch). Oh yeah and don’t get me started on chuck-it and spare balls. So it’s either have huge pockets or a slim cross body bag which doesn’t feel as if I’m dragging around everything and the kitchen sink.
The road test
As with all of Scatty’s products, there is always a test make. (Basically this is a pattern trial, but in reality it’s my sneaky way of making one for myself. Shhh, don’t tell Ian!)

Enough waffle, tell me about the bag!
Like all of Scatty’s makes, the dog walker bag is repurposed from cotton fabric purchased from the stock that charity shops have been unable to sell. Often this stock is either sent to landfill or shipped abroad to flood native markets having a negative impact on local textile markets.
- Open pocket for quick and easy access to treats.
- Front zipper pocket holds a roll of poop bags that feeds through a grommet/eyelet, so they are within easy reach.
- There is space for a mini hand sanitizer.
- Inside main compartment has a phone drop pocket sized to accommodate the largest iPhones, and enough room to carry keys, wallet, etc.
- Adjustable strap extends from 27 inches (69 cm) to 50 inches (127 cm)
- Can be crossbody or shoulder bag
6 inches (16 cm) wide x 8 inches (20 cm) high
