I got a new yoga mat for Christmas and it’s so fabulous and thick I thought I needed a new bag to carry it around in. So, as usual, I decided to throw together a video tutorial for you so you can make one too!
This tutorial is 20 minutes long. Yes. I know. That’s long. But trust me it’s worth it. I walk you through every.single.step. I teach you how to take the measurements of your rolled up yoga mat so you can make it custom to your mat’s measurements. If you don’t have a mat or are making this as a gift for someone, just use the same measurements I use in the video and you should be good. I leave enough room around to accommodate a longer and thicker mat just in case. This project is beginner friendly. Follow my video tutorial and you’ll be good to go.
I kept this bag simple. I like to look out for my beginners out there (hi sewing newbies!) So there is no lining, no interfacing, no zipper, no pockets, no snaps. Just a simple drawstring closure and a sturdy shoulder strap. I only use one fabric and a yard is more than enough. As a matter of fact you could make two of these from one yard of home decor weight fabric.
I hope you’ll give this yoga mat bag project a try and when you do be sure to upload pics to my Facebook page so I can see it! www.facebook.com/craftygemini
