Yoga Mat Bag Pattern ~ last minture Mother’s Day gift idea…

 A friend {who teaches Yoga in the park} asked me to create a Yoga Mat Bag for her.  She wanted something that was cool, “etsyish” and “funkarific”.  {I love her terminology}.  But I totally got it and was excited to get creating!  I came up with this scrappy looking bag that boasts: a pocket for a cell phone or water bottle, a reinforced shoulder strap, a drawstring top and is completely reversible.

Wouldn’t this make a great last minute Mother’s Day gift?  Fill it with a Yoga mat, receipt for Yoga classes and a gift certificate from Lu Lu Lemon!  Perfect.

 Here is the pocket.  I made sure that it was big enough to be multi-purpose and double top stitched it for a more polished look.  {Can a bag be polished? :P}
 I wanted to make sure that the strap could withstand long walks and hikes through the park.  Here it is, all reinforced with extra stitching.
I created a small pocket at the top of the bag for a drawstring.
Completely reversible if you want to change it up.
Here are the cutting dimensions and pattern that I used. You can click on the photo and print it out if that helps.
And another blue/green version.
Too funkerific?
But kid approved!!

Thanks for swinging by!
