This is another one of those projects that I just made up as I went along. (Again, I have no idea how long ago I made this. Several years ago at least.)
The fabric is a remnant bin find. (That remnant bin is my first stop whenever I enter Joann's.) I'm not sure what it is but it's some sort of thick cotton that's soft like flannel.
I made quite a wide casing for the top tie so it was easy to gather.
I used a black tie that came off of a pair of sweat pants that had ties around the ankles. Not a big fan of pants with ties around the ankles.
I have no idea why I did this, but I folded the edges over and hemmed each side before sewing it into a tube. Maybe because I was a novice sewer and though I needed to. No idea....
Hubby just had to put his face in a picture :)
I made a tube for the handle and zig zigged to top stitch.
When I actually went to the gym for yoga I loved having a cute bag to carry my mat in. It also works well if you need a strap for some of those leg stretches.
Now my mat spends most of it's time propped up in a corner. Occasionally, I do manage to get some yoga time in while baby Izz plays next to me. My balance is definitely put to the test when she pulls herself up on my legs.
