How does a single, crafty girl celebrate Valentine's Day? She makes herself something pretty. And my pretty has come in the form of a new yoga mat bag.
My office has started offering a yoga class every week after work. So I went out and bought a yoga mat, a pink one, to take part. But what is the point of having a pink mat, if you don't have a cute bag to carry it in?
What I love is that I was finally able to use my cute Echino fabric. I got it on killer sale, but there was only one yard available. That really limited the kind of projects I could sew with it. So when I bought the book, "One Yard Wonders," and saw the yoga bag pattern, I knew it would be perfect.
Here are the stats...
Pattern: Yoga Mat Bag
Source: One Yard Wonders
Fabric: Echino Woodland Damask in Pink
Yardage: 1 yard
Made for: Moi
Date Started and Completed: February 13, 2010 (Took about three hours or so)
So Happy Valentine's Day all you wonderful people in blogland! Go out and make yourself something special.
