Bag of the Month with Sew Hungry Hippie:

Bliss Yoga Bag
Instructor: Natalie Santini

Saturday, July 13

Sew a zippered yoga bag with Natalie of Sew Hungry Hippie! We will focus on inserting a main large zipper for fast access to the yoga mat plus two zippered security pockets. I'll show you how to make an adjustable strap, which you can use for any future bag project also.

Natalie writes her patterns with step-by-step photos, directions, diagrams, and digital illustrations so everyone has a successful experience. There are options to customize your best bag as well- such as a vinyl cell phone pocket inside and more! This bag may be sewn with quilting cotton, canvas, duck cloth, vinyl, cork, leather, faux leather, and PU leather. Make sure you have the proper feet to sew if bringing an unconventional material (such as vinyl- you'll need a Teflon foot).

The finished bag measures approx 6.5" diameter x 27" length, however, we can customize this if you need! I do have fat mat dimensions already worked out if you need them. All her patterns go through three rounds of testing by varying levels of sewing experience, including beginner to advanced. Hope to see you in class! Take the skills learned and use them on future bags.
