The best thing about being able to sew is that you can make some things that can cover what you need. Sometimes it’s hard to find a product that really meets my needs as I can be too annoyingly picky sometimes. It’s either not the perfect pink color for me or less functional. I don’t want to spend my money on things I less like just because I haven’t met the right one, I dont want to give up, I’d rather not buy it. For instance, I spent 2 hours browsing on online stores (even on IG) and called all the The Body Shop Indonesia branches in Sumatra just to find the right pink shower puff (yes, just a shower puff. Like it matters a deal), it should be the right perfect pinkyness level, not too purple and not too peachy. This example just makes the title ironic, I know.
Anyway, when I go to yoga class, I always bring some ammunitions; yoga mat, blocks, belt, water bottle, towels, extra t-shirt, gadgets and of course my wallet. Yup, I tend to carry my life on my shoulder. I used to bring two bags for my yoga mat and other stuffs separately. It’s not handy and also not safe for a forgetful person like me, I will either forget my yoga bag or my tote bag somewhere.
Hence, I came up with the idea to mix the two functions, a yoga tote bag is the result. A tote bag with adjustable straps on it to carry my yoga mat. This is great as I have mats in different thickness, so it won’t be too loose or too small, perfect for all yoga mats. For the inner, I use black polkadot cotton fabric so that it looks neat and cute.
If you’re a yogi and have the same needs like mine, you can browse and shop on my online craft shop,CRAFTOPIA, for more variety of patterns. FYI, I don’t only change my blog, I also changed my shop brand that I started in 2013, from “Cihudhood_Craft” to this. Yeah it took me years to finally find the perfect name.
If you’re a more simple person that carries yoga mat only to class, I also make yoga mat bags for your yoga mat to keep it clean, easy to carry around and look catchy. If you don’t do yoga, it can also be a good gift for your loved ones! **As a seller, my job is to find 1001 reasons why you have to buy this and give your money to me, lol.
