I’m set to start yoga at the beach on the lake in beautiful Trevignano Romano with my stylish new yoga mat tote bag. How inspiring.
My prior excuse of it being too much work to get organized is no longer valid as my new yoga mat carrier holds all: rolled mat, wallet, keys, belt, plus my workout gear. A bag designed to be as blissful as yoga!
Its easy crochet pattern makes this in an idea for beginners AND an ideal crochet-at-the-beach project.
