Super Cool Yoga Mat Bag.

I recently started taking up Jazzercise classes. While browsing for a yoga mat bag I stumbled on Meream's blog. I liked the tutorial so much that I immediately got down to making one myself.

This was the fabric I had in mind for the bag,

But then, the plan changed as my Mr felt this was too colorful and girly and he wanted me to choose something less feminine, so I looked into my fabric bundles if I could find something of his choice. And finally I found this fabric which I bought long ago for just 0.30 cents in the remnants section.

I just picked it up because I never paid that price for a fabric before. My Mr okay'd the fabric so I set down to work.

I made a 27inches long and 19 inch wide bag, which is basically about a couple of inches more than the yoga mat.

Finally this is how it turned out.

Miss A (my daughter's name is Ananya, which means One and Only) was waiting all this while just for an opportunity to wear the bag, so here she is modelling for my pictures. The above picture shows one way which you can wear the bag (over the neck).

This one shows a second style(on the shoulder),

and here goes the third (well this one is on the shoulder too but just in a different pose). By now you must be wondering about the tent in the photograph. The story is Miss A has been pretending she is camping, so I put up a tent in her room and she has been eating and sleeping there for the past one week.

Well the reason behind Miss A's giggles is that she finally convinced me to make one for her doll too. And here goes my Mr with the bag.

So, now I think I will use the fabric of my choice to make one for me (err.. small correction, Miss A says, first I need to make for her doll).
