Yoga Mat Tote Class

Yoga Mat Tote Class at Home Made

Brace yourself because I’ve got a LOT of excitement over here about our new Yoga Mat Tote class. This class is pretty much the perfect combination of my loves. Yoga + Accessories + Sewing + Canvas + Fabric Paint. Heaven.

So, let’s get to it yogis! In this class, we’re going to stitch up our totes using this tutorial, the fabulous new Outback Canvas that recently arrived to the shop, and cotton webbing. Yes, if you’re a total newbie to machine sewing, don’t fret at that little “stitch” word. This simple project is the perfect chance to learn some basics. Straight lines are your friends, friends.

After we construct our totes, we’re going to break out the fabric paint and have even more fun. Yes, MORE fun! 

Painting Yoga Mat Tote

With some ever-helpful masking tape, we can paint stripes and geometric shapes. Or, you can freestyle paint polka dots or “Om” symbols. Whatever gets your chakras moving and you ready to chaturanga!

Gold Striped Yoga Mat Tote

This tote’s awesomeness continues. You see, my current tote is this velcro strappy thing that always sticks to my yoga pants when I’m not-so-gracefully trying to strap it around my mat. The velcro strappy thing also lacks cuteness as it’s plain blah black. With this new carrier, I just roll up my mat, plop it in, grab my straps and go. The mat’s stickiness holds it in place.

Now, all the details including upcoming dates for the class can be found here. Remember, space is limited and so registration with payment is required to save your spot in class.

And, if you can’t make it to those dates scheduled but have a group of yogis that would like to make this project, just contact me at 609.536.2940 or julie AT behomemade DOT com and we’ll sort something out. Like, if you’d like to arrange a workshop for your local yoga studio. . .


{I knit the gray hat with pink stripes you see in the first photo using the free Chili Pepper Hat pattern and Spud & Chloe Fine yarn. And, I knit the white hat in the second photo using Tiny Owl Knits Orchids & Fairy Lights pattern and Manos del Uruguay Maxima yarn. And, all this good stuff is available for purchase in the Home Made shop!}
