The bag on the left I made for my friend Maria. I used the yoga mat tote pattern from the book Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter.
I've made several of the projects in this book and had great success. The instructions are easy to follow and the illustrations are simple but clear. Instead of purchasing cord for the drawstring, I made my own using extra fabric.
Sew4Home. I'm making the bag a little bigger - I cut the pieces 16 by 33 - and I am making my straps out of the same fabric as the lining instead of buying webbing.
I'm using this great fabric from Michael Miller called Secret Garden. I think it is very zen-like, which will be perfect for my yoga bag.
Of course now I need to get myself signed up for a yoga class!
I will post a pic of the completed bag as soon as I get it finished.
