crochet yoga mat bag

Summer.  I'm in love with you.  
Your carefree, no-where-to-be days.
Your bird-chirping, sun-shiny air.
Barefoot through the grass,
splashing in the pool.
Kids up late,
mornings spent lounging in bed reading.
And lots of time to create and refuel the muse.

Here's a little gift I hooked up for one of my middle son's teachers:

It's a crochet yoga mat bag, and you can find the pattern here.

A simple pattern worked in joined rounds of 3dc ch2.

The hardest part for me was the knitted i-cord, which I abandoned after several attempts and multiple YouTube video viewings (both knitting and crochet versions).  With time running out, I just did two rows of double crochet joined with single crochet in an accent yarn.  Works for me!

All packaged up and ready for giving.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I love that you are leaving a little note to let me know you were here!
