New Yoga Mat Bag
I get so many requests to make a yoga mat bag. I have made a couple but just had to share the one I finished today. I made it out of a Buddha's Cup Kona coffee bag. One side has a smiling Buddha with the sun shining on his back and holding a full cup of coffee. The back of the bag says "Buddha's Cup estate grown Kona coffee for the enlightened bean inall of us". I used a nice batik fabric at the top of the bag and attached grommets to that header that I threaded 1/4" poly cotton cord through.
The 48" adjustable strap is totally tricked out with hardware. There are 2 black D rings inserted into seams on both the top and bottom. To these you can hook the black swivel hooks that are attached to both ends of the strap. Also, in honor of the two shoulder surgeries I endured, I have a comfort strap attached so that the webbing won't dig into your shoulders! Always thinking...I am!
The interior is lined with a brown twill with a slick finish so that your yoga mat will slide in easily.
This bag has an 18" diameter and is about 8" wide and 28" tall. Perfect size!
I have to work on getting some better photos of it but for now...these will work!
