Yoga Mat Bag Tutorial

My sister asked me to make her a Yoga Mat Bag out of her favorite Scarlet Fig fabric, Wing Chairs...the one with the yellow chairs on the grey background. So while I was sewing, I made myself one out of Comfy Couches in red AND I wrote a tutorial. You can download it here (it's a PDF file):

The instructions are long, but it is NOT hard. I promise! I just wanted to take lots of pictures along the way. Have fun!

I think yoga is a great activity, i really love to practice exercise, i think this activity is the best option to keep our total welfare and it is very fun. When we exercise frequently we can notice a change not only in our shape but in our mood too. Actually we can improve our sexual performance. In some cases when the erectil dysfunction present like a problem to buy viagra is a great alternative, how ever you must to combine with exercises and a good food.

I added some steps that make the finish much more professional.
1. The circle at the bottom of the bag is approximately 5.5" in diameter.
2. Cut 2 circles to make the lining a complete bag instead of just the sides of the bag (also eliminates the hand-tacking step)
3. Cut a piece of heavy sew-in or fusible interfacing 2.5x38" and stack it on top of the two layers of the strap. Sew and turn as described; now your strap won't fold annoyingly in on itself, but have some oomph. Also, when you attach the strap to the bag, consider using triple stitch.
4. When you fold down the top of the outer bag 1/4", also fold the sides of the slash/unsewn first 2" of the outer bag back 1/4" and sew them down so those edges aren't raw.
5. When sewing the outer bag over the inner lining at the top, first iron down 1/4" of the lining. That encloses the raw edge in between the two layers, rather than having it loose in the drawstring channel to fray and shred as you draw the drawstring in and out.
P.S. Blog owner, you may want to consider some sort of spam filter! ;) I'm commented as anonymous only because of all the spam in these comments. My name is Liz. :)
