When a deal came up for yoga, I thought I'd give it a shot. A girl-friend of mine was already into the practice at the same studio so I started going with her.
It takes a little getting used to, but I now love it. It has been such an inspiration and stress reliever that I just had to share it with you guys.
So when Carolyn from Shop Earthangie on Etsy sent me a yoga bag to review, I thought the perfect way to introduce you guys to my interest in yoga would be with a GIVEAWAY!
This hand-made yoga bag tote is made with fabric. It has more than one layer to make it sturdy. There is a nice long handle to throw it over your shoulder and a pocket for small items such as car keys. The thing I love the most is that it can be thrown in with your next load of laundry!
Carolyn made this yoga bag when she thought about how easy it could be to make her own. She tried with success and then decided to make more and sell them for less so people could still buy something and have money left over for class!
Most of Carolyn's sewed "creations" do not come from a pattern, yoga bags included. She will start with the most simple layout, master the pattern and then start to get fancy. Over time, she found different ways to attach straps. In addition, some bags have buttons, some have drawstrings, some have velcro flaps and some are left open. Some have pockets on the outside and some don't. Anything can be requested of Carolyn, she lets people tell her what they want if they don't see what they need.
Carolyn has been crafty since childhood. She started with art, which can be found here, and crafts popped up here and there throughout her life. Her inspiration comes from an Affinpincher, named Emma, from "Little Paws 4 U", an organization based out of Rhode Island that transports mistreated and abandoned dogs up north to new homes.
That's where she started on etsy and entered the craft world of selling and going to shows, through dog coats. With her "distracted" brain, Carolyn has veered off and done tons of different things.
When Carolyn walks into a store, she keeps her eyes open to notice pretty things. When she does she thinks, "how can I figure out how to make that?" Then she doe... and hopes you like it too.
And I think you will, as one of you lucky readers will win this Sweetheart Yoga Mat bag!
