Preparing on Sunday for this new week, I realized that nightly transfers of the paraphernalia needed for my exercise classes into my gym bag creates a situation where something will inevitably be forgotten. So I made four simple draw-string bags to hold my stuff.
Each bag is 16” wide by 18” in height. I used a wonderful red/cream-striped cotton fabric that reminds me of French ticking. One-inch-wide woven cotton webbing serves for the drawstrings and a patch made from printable fabric represents each class.
In order from left to right in the picture: yoga, ballet, belly dancing, and Tai Chi.
Now I can prepare my exercise essentials for the week and grab the appropriate bag on my way out the door. This morning I’m going to make the yoga mat tote from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects out of the leftover fabric.
Upcoming is a project that has been living in my heart and needs to be fully realized—I’ll tell you about that tomorrow as I hope you'll help.
