I've started taking Pilates classes as part of my New Year's resolution.  When I started this class I was using a yoga mat provided by the gym but I decided that I needed my own personal mat.  I didn't want to leave in my car all the time to get dirty and sun-damaged so I had to make it a bag.  This way, I've made something that will inspire me to go to the gym.  I put my time into this bag and I don't want it to be a waste of time so I have to go.  I hope that makes sense.  Here are some of the pictures.

This is the bag in action.  I just had to dig through all my fabric and pick a few colors that I liked together to make it.  The strap goes over my head so I wear it kind of like a messenger bag.

This is a closer picture of the closure at the top of the bag.  This idea was totally mine, I didn't get it from anyone else.  Although, now that I've made it I've seen bags similar to it.  But I came up with the idea and made it one Sunday after I bought my mat.

This is what happens when you sit on the floor with a dog in the house.  Of course you're down there to pay attention to the puppy.  There couldn't be any other reason.  But its about the same length as the dog.  I just had to include this picture.

Those are pretty fabrics. Nice idea to have a water bottle pocket, too.

That is so pretty!  And I have to concur-that water bottle pocket was genius!

Thank you so much for the comments.  The water bottle pocket is definitely useful!  Cheesy

I agree with the others, fabric choices are really nice and the water bottle pocket was a great idea!
