Are you looking for a yoga mat bag? Why don’t you do it yourself with this lovely free crochet pattern?
Crocheting can be a decorative mindful art, but you can use it for tons of useful things you may need in your daily life. That’s actually one of the things I like the most about crocheting, don’t you agree? It gives an amazing feeling to use something that you create, eco-friendly at its fullest, and with a lot of heart in it. That brings us to the fact that everything handmade is a lovely gift to receive from a special person, it’s not “just a thing”, I like to think that the time used to create it will always be a part of it.
