Ginger Yoga Tote
$25 includes shipping
I was so excited about all the new freecycle fabrics I got from my friend Ginger yesterday that I decided it was time to have a go at making a yoga tote. I've never made one before. It's the circular bottom, I was a bit unsure about how to do it.
I think my High School math teacher might be proud of me. Math and I don't get along all that well. I almost gave up when I searched, how to find the circumference of a circle, and it told me to multiply the diameter of the circle by π to find it! I had to learn what pi was to put this thing together! π - pi, help!!!
Actually it turned out to be really easy. Finding pi isn't some complicated mathematical equation like I feared it would be, pi is 3.14.

I'm pretty proud of how the bag turned out. I already have an awesome yoga tote though. I didn't make my tote but I was the graphic designer for the graphic on it. It was my first ever published piece of art! I did use that bag as a bit of a guide for making the Ginger Yoga Tote.
I'm planning to work on the details of this design and then post a tutorial so you can make one too. If you don't sew, don't worry, I will be making more and posting them for sale here on Upcycled by Ash!
The Ginger Yoga Tote is roomy enough for a ticker yoga mat. Mine measures 15 inches in diameter and it slips in easily. The bag is lined with a purple material and closes with a ribbon tie. Beads tied on to the ribbon keep it from slipping into the bag.
The single front pocket is large enough for your keys and yoga card or cash for class. I found $7 in mine when I pulled it out for inspiration! I love finding money!!!
I'm hoping that making the tote is the first step in getting motivated to find a yoga class near me. I love yoga, but I haven't done any for months. I have a lot of excuses for why I haven't gone, but none of them are very convincing.
