This is a yoga mat bag that I created for Sew News magazine. A friend of mine is a yoga instructor and I was inspired to create something for her, and it seemed like a good piece for a magazine too. I whipped up a test sample out of cotton, changed a few things–mostly how the strap was hanging and the pocket size–and wrote a pattern. I used a heavy canvas for the final bag and picked a fabric that is bold (what I’m typically drawn to) in a color palette I thought she might like.
You can make a yoga mat bag from the pattern I wrote and find lots of other great project ideas in the winter issue of Sew News. I’ve seen it at Barnes and Noble and other bookstores. I’ve got another pattern coming out in the spring as well! It was such fun, hopefully they’ll want me to write a few more.
