Felted Yoga Bag and Everything Totes in 2 Sizes

Difficulty: Easy

Yoga practitioners will love the simplicity and functionality of this felted Yoga Mat Tote. A simple tie closure keeps it shut and the beautiful JUL rolled leather handle makes it comfortable on the shoulder. For those archers among us, it was pointed out to me that this might also make a great quiver!

The pattern also includes instructions for two sizes of Everything totes. These totes have nice wide bases so you can pack a lot into them. Fold in the corners for a decidedly vintage travel bag, or fill it to the top. A zipper closure keeps your things from spilling out all over the tarmac.

  • Nomad in three sizes

    Nomad Felted Bag in 3 Sizes


    Delivery Method:

    Sometimes you just want a soft bag that drapes over your shoulder and wears like a broken-in pair of jeans. This bag is that bag.

    Available in 3 sizes, there is a size that will perfectly fit your purpose: the smallest bag is just right for a day-trip, a jaunt to the mall, for your lunch, or to tuck inside a big bag. It's the little bag you grab when you've got to make a quick trip. The medium sized bag is the classic all-day every-day bag. And the large size is a great tote for your knitting projects, a weekend escape, or for people like me who love a large bag even if all you've got in it is a set of keys.

  • Large carpet bag with Camellia flower

    Carpet Bag in 3 Sizes


    Delivery Method:

    This classically-shaped Carpet Bag combines practicality and beauty. It makes a bold statement as a briefcase embellished with luscious camellia flowers (flower instructions included in the pattern), a great weekender bag, or a knitting bag that will be the envy of all but those who have already made their own.

    The Rather huge carpet bag really is rather huge. If the finished measurements seem rather abstract to you, get out that tape measure and make it in the air. It is BIG. And it is traffic-stopping gorgeous, with big, sexy camellias on one (or both) sides.
