I needed a way to transport my yoga mat that didn’t cost me too much money. I do not like parting with my money. I tried just carrying it, but at 5:00 in the morning I tended to drop it a lot.
I was eyeballing the yoga mat bags I would see in the gym to see how they were made. One look told me I could do it. When I finally sat down to work on it I:
Grabbed an old pair of scrub pants I had and cut off one leg. I sewed closed one end and on the other end I made a casing for the drawstring I pulled from the waistband of the pants. I used the drawstring to keep that end closed. Now for a carrying strap…
I cut the waistband from the pants and sewed the edges over so I had no raw edges and then sewed each end to the bag.
In less than one hour I had a yoga mat bag for free! That is a price I don’t mind paying!
