modernhaus_boatpeoplevintage02 Have you heard of Modernhaus? A super cool California based company which sales upcycled furniture and clothes. I especially love the upholstered Pendleton chairs. Doesn’t it make you want to find an old wooden chair, buy some wool fabric and make your own?!

If you are a yoga nerd like us, chances are you’ll really enjoy this tutorial.  This is part one of two designs of yoga mat bags we’re publishing here on the blog.  We were super lucky to have Sophie from Magic Carpet to work with us on this project, she sent us her beautiful and colorful yoga mats to inspire us with the designs.  Make sure you check out their website to see all the other designs available!

Material needed:

  • 1 meter fabric
  • 20 cm pleather
  • leather cord
  • cord stopper
  • sewing material

Tips:

For better results, use a heavy canvas so it won’t stretch wear quickly.  If you can find real leather, the look will be even nicer, but I wanted to keep the project “vegan” as much as possible.  In the video, I sew the bottom pleather part before sewing the rest of the fabric. If you feel that it’s easier for you, you can sew the bottom circle to the pleather rectangle, then sew your fabric to the pleather rectangle, and then close the stitch to the side seam.
