Arnhem, Netherlands






A great shoulderbag for a yoga mat with 3 pockets on the bag, and a mobile phone pocket on the strap.

I had some left over material, started drawing and a yoga bag came out!

Material Notes

I used a leftover, heavy/strong materials. I made the pockets and bottom of the bag in a contrasting colour.

Bag: 73 × 45 cm
Big pockets: 35 × 45 cm
Bottom: cirkel with a diameter of 14 cm
Strap: 100 × 10 cm
Strap pocket 10 × 15 cm
A cord for closing, I made one myself with knitting cotton, 45 cm long.

    I made this for my daughter who’s a Yoga instructor and she loved it! Your instructions were clear and easy to follow and the size was perfect. Thank you!

    Very nice! I’ve always wanted to make one. Since you used heavy fabric, you don’t need lining fabric for the inside, right?

    I hope you understand my yoga bag pattern. This is my first go at making a pattern, and then writing instructions in English… If anything is to Dutch for you, please contact me and I’ll explain! :) Enjoy!
