When I wrote “Refresh my yoga skills” on my list of 30 Things, I never really did the math on when I actually last did yoga. Well, it turns out that “in college” doesn’t mean just a few years ago anymore, and after a decade without yoga I think I need to amend #9 to be “Learn yoga skills all over again.”
Fortunately, I have a way to carry my mat to class now, assuming I can make myself start going:
This was a fun, fast project made entirely of fabrics I had around the house. The pockets around the bottom, the strap, and the lining were left over from the pillows I made before Christmas, and the body fabric was a filing cabinet cover I made when I moved here that was recently retired in the Post-breakup Living Room Re-do of ’09.
I have to give special thanks to my crafty friend Kara, who inspired me with her bag last month and then suggested this pattern (a free Amy Butler download). Thanks, Kara!
Amanda, do I see a sewing night in the future?
I’m sooooooo going to attempt this. And don’t be surprised if I call you late one night crying, and needing your help. 🙂 Then, you need to come to Yoga with Amber and Me! Although, I really liked Kara’s suggestion. That so sounds like something Amber would say.
Thanks, you two! Kara, I like your plan. 🙂
I love the colors!
Yay! It looks so super cute! I love the fabric combo. Now we have bags we should maybe go to a class. Not to actually do yoga, just to walk around with our bags looking cute and making everyone else jealous.
