I’ve started taking a yoga class at my gym, rather than my home DVDs, and although they gym offers mats for the class, I decided, after an unpleasant experience with a particularly fragrant mat, that I do need to drag one of my mats in with me. It’s sort of a drag, because the class is after work, so that means I will now have to bike to work on Mondays with my gym clothes in one pannier, my lunch and miscellaneous stuff in the other, and now a yoga mat.
The fabric I’ve had since I worked in Australia in 1997 – I’ve never known what to do with it. I love it, and love the way it works on this project.
Because I just free-formed this pattern, I didn’t guess-timate my measurements perfectly, so the drawstring doesn’t quite close at the top. I need to make it a bit longer next time.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty excited about it. It took me about an hour to make, which means others would be faster. I can already think of how fun this would be with different color combinations and prints and so on.
But next up are two more projects – one is altering a blazer I just bought, the other is making a skirt from a pattern. I’m not sure which to tackle first, but I can’t wait to get started!
