I actually made this yoga bag before Christmas, but because I also made one for my sister for Christmas I’ve been waiting to post it. I haven’t had a need to transport my yoga mat anywhere lately but hopefully I’ll change that this year and this bag will be perfect.
I used the Amy Butler Nigella Bag Pattern (which is free!) and it worked out pretty well. I love the pockets on the sides and how easy the pattern was to follow. I added a draw string closure to the top when I attached the lining to the bag (during Step 6C I folded it over another time to make a sleeve for the drawstring and put in some button holes to thread it out of) but kept the rest the same.
Even if I’m not heading off to yoga anytime soon, my mat is neatly put away and I don’t have to worry about the cat mistaking it for a scratch toy!
