Yoga Mat Bag Project: Crossing the finish line?

3 Nov

I purchased several boxes of yoga mats left unsold from a holiday marketing promotion.   That would be a total of 65.  The mats come in bold blue, green, purple, pink and gray.   18 got custom bags and found good homes.  Leaving 47 in the closet.  (7 will stay in my stash for the time being.) 40 mats now have matching bags to be donated to a local women’s shelter.

Two boxes, twenty each

The inspiration for Yoga Mat Bags came from One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins.  Yoga classes are one of my favorite activities.  Making bags for mats… natural synergy of my interests.  Now that I engaged phase 2, the best, delightful part of sewing yoga mat bags is working with 20 beautiful colors and patterns of fabric.

From Dec 2013—–>to Oct 2015  Not much happened because my stitched service was dedicated to Days for Girls International and a “shower caddy” project for Wheeler Mission.  Thanks to Pimla Ponderings to nudge me to complete UFOs (unfinished objects).
