I started doing pilates at home on the bare wood floor. Then I tried a thick picnic quilt. Then I borrowed my friend's yoga mat to see if that solved the slippage issue. Yes, it does! A valuable tool. So I haunted ebay until I bought a yoga mat for $10.
I have some fabulous polyester double-knit in my stash, thanks to Rebecca and, I believe, her aunt. It was perfect for a sturdy, fun yoga-mat bag that could be flung aside on the floor and not show much dirt.
The bottom is the best part and I can't believe I forgot to take a picture! (well, yes I can, there were children yipping and bouncing nearby). The bottom circle is a patchwork composite of the green and coral.
I designed this happy bag by myself and, hooray! I'm pleased with all my sewing on it.
Now I need to get back into the exercise routine - reflux blew that away after Christmas along with some pudge, but I'm feeling somewhat better these days and here comes the pudge as I eat more normally again.
