As part of a swap package I wanted to give my partner a yoga mat.  Unfortunately everything I could find was pastel, and she just didn't seem like a pastel girl to me.  But hey, I'm a crafter right I'll make it work.  I bought a lavender mat and painted a black and silver argyle on it.  I was originally going to use painters tape to mark off the diamonds, but quickly learned that it tears up the mat.  So I instead used a straight edge and black sharpie to draw the diamonds on and then filled them in carefully with acrylic paint.  It took a lot more paint than expected since the mat is textured.  Then I drew the silver lines on with a straight edge and silver sharpie.  I hope it holds up.  I couldn't find anything online for decorating a yoga mat, so I kinda made it all up.


Penny: Oh, wow! A girl scientist!
Leslie Winkle: Yup. Come for the breasts. Stay for the brains.
