This has been on my to-do list for years. I finally did it!

I've had a ton of this tan canvas duck cloth (think Carhartt) since my BIL thought he wanted me to make him seat covers for his Jeep that never panned out. It's been used in a myriad of projects since it's purchase, but when I came across this awesome tutorial using upholstery fabric, I knew exactly how I wanted to use up the canvas.

The only problem was the color. I knew I could jazz up the fabric somehow, or even use it as a sturdy lining, but exactly what to do was just not gelling in my head. Until LimeRiot posted her now famous toilet paper printing tutorial, and inspiration struck.

Since this is for a yoga mat, and I'm a little bit peace-loving hippie, I cut off the end of the roll and glued it back in to make a peace sign shape:

I dipped it in some white acrylic paint and prayed it would work:


From there, it was a piece of cake to follow the tute and create the bag! I've had the strap in my stash for years, I think it fits the bag perfectly!

Here are a few more pics, because I'm completely in love with the finished product.

Thanks for looking! Namaste.

I love your bag. What a great re-purpose/de-stash...and something that fits your personality! And I love the re-use of the toilet roll. Great way to make a stamp! I am often challenged for new ways to use them. There are so many, and so much trash...I am a re-make and re-use type gal. You seem the same. Great idea. Wish I knew a good yoga position, and I would sit in it, as a tribute to you!  Grin
