I've decided to make a bag for my sister's yoga bag. Here's my first attempt. It's a good thing it was too tight (well it wasn't, it's just didn't have enough wiggle room so the rubber kept gripping the sides) so I made the second version, all with fabrics from my stash. I had fun making it becaust it was a complex project that required all of my tailoring skills but I love the results and I'm pretty sure sister will like it too.

I'm digging how the top comes off, rather than having an opening in the side of some sort!  And the handles on the top are clever, too!  I've been thinking about a yoga bag, but I was worried about the mat gripping as it went in - so the trick is to have wiggle room?  Would fabric choice have anything to do with stickage, do you suppose?  Yours looks like duck or some denim?  Maybe I can use the leg from some pants that I accidently bleached one knee! 
Thanks for sharing!

Yes you need wiggle room. My initial thought was that 1/4" would be enough ease but it wasn't. This bag has 1" and I think that the liner that has a satin surface on one side is the reason why is slips it. If you look at simpler versions, like this Amy Butler pattern, they probably have 3/4 inches of ease and with that much, the fabric matters little.
