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!
