We're having an auction fundraiser for the non-profit I work for next month, and one of the packages we're auctioning off includes yoga classes and massage. We decided to include a yoga mat in the package, but since it wasn't in a box or anything, the presentation wasn't too hot. So I offered to make the Om Yoga Mat Bag from Stitch N Bitch Nation. I finished it last night and stopped by the office today (on a day off no less!) to make sure it fit nicely. Here 'tis:
Like a lot of other people have noted, this took a lot less than the 2 balls of Lion Cotton the pattern calls for--I have quite a bit of the one ball I used left. I even made it a little bit longer so it would come to the top of the mat, too. I did make the strap shorter, however. I'm pretty happy with it; I never would have made this for myself, but it was a fun quickie project. Thanks for looking!
