The Yoga-Mat Bag

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.


  1. Wonderfully creative :) I have mine rolled up and in a corner of the living room. The bag looks very nice indeed!

  2. I love it! Delicious colors. Hopefully the happy bag will inspire you to pilates greatness.

    I'm glad that you're feeling better.

  3. Good for you!! Great job!

    And that cherry pie & its accompanying meal...oh my goodness, it looks fabulous!


I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
