I have just started to take Yoga classes and have been thinking about the best way to carry my mat to class with me. So far I have it narrowed down to two options, knit or sewn. The first picture is a free downloadable pattern from Amy Butler called the Nigella Yoga Bag. It looks promising and I can tailor it to include a cellphone pocket, and maybe a pocket for bottled water.
The other option is a felted yoga bag from the book Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. I saw a picture of this made out of malabrigo and it was inspiring. Here is a different picture to give you an idea.
I’m really looking forward to making one of these after school ends. I will be graduating with my Bachelors in Business at the end of May. That will give me some time to find my yarn or fabric.
I would love to hear from you on what you would do or have done with a yoga bag!
