Sew an EASY Yoga Tote – Free Tutorial

+ Amy Butler's NEW "Hapi" fabric line!

Yoga Mat Bag sewing Tutorial by Sew4Home

Liz Johnson, who authored this free sewing tutorial, is absolutely right, we shouldn’t sit and sew all day. We have to get up and move, stretch, loosen the joints.  She really loved Amy Butler‘s Love fabric collection, and thought it was perfect for this yoga bag project. This large capacity bag will carry your towel, mat, shoes and water bottle. A heavier weight fabric for this little cutie is recommended and will be enjoyed.  You could also use canvas, oilcloth, laminated cotton, or a even a funky vinyl. Since the project is done with Amy Butler’s “Love” fabric collection, I will mention that there were several home decor weights to ponder from that line but you might want to wait and see what Amy has lined up for January 2014… (see video below). Your lining can be regular weight, I suggest nylon for sports bags.
