I made my first Amy Butler bag a few years ago - it was a bag to carry my yoga/pilates mat to classes.  I made it from this turquoise AB fabric which I really liked.

I recently joined a yoga studio and have needed a bag (other than plastic grocery bags!) to carry my clothes.  This is what I came up with (my first time working with oilcloth - I like it so much better than clear plastic vinyl!  it sews amazingly well).

With an extra (waterproof) oilcloth section to divide my clothes from the day away from my yoga clothes:

Velcro-ed pocket on the outside for my keys:

Very cute! I like the choice of oilcloth you used, very pretty. Smiley

Pretty!  Is that real oilcloth, or the modern equivalent?  I have tried to find real oilcloth online, but to no avail thus far.  I like how you used the oilcloth and just the general look of the whole bag.  Nicely done!

My guess is that it's the modern equivalent.  It was with the cloth that looks like the old-fashioned table cloths (with the red checkers).  When I asked the girl about what it was, she first said it was vinyl.  So then I asked what's the difference between vinyl and oilcloth and she corrected herself to say what I was buying was oilcloth.

So, I don't think it's "real" oilcloth, but it is waterproof and close to a thick fabric in thickness so it's pretty easy to sew (I used to use the clear plastic vinyl lined with a pretty fabric, how difficult that was!).

Thanks for the encouraging words!

I love the Japanese inspired print that you used for the outer fabric -it's beautiful! Something like this would take me forever to sew but I sure appreciate looking at the lovely projects that other forum members make. Nice Job!


Love it!

I love the outside and inner designs of the bag!! The pockets are also a unique design. Most yoga bags don't really have compartment for the keys.
