Announcement    One of my passions (or very bad habit?) is estate sales. I'm constantly intrigued at the bounty of fabrics, clothing, linen and beaded jewelry which can easily be re-purposed into something beautiful and useful. And I can't help but wonder if the little ladies who left behind their treasures, unneeded or unwanted by their families, smile down when they see the objects of their enjoyment being recycled and passed on.

I thank you for your time as you look around Yoga's My Bag and see all the unique bags I offer in recycled materials as well as newer prints and batiks. Take a look too my line of clothing in my other Etsy shop called Fadoware. There you’ll find some skirts upcycled from t shirts that are perfect to wear to class as a cover up or as everyday wear for a unique boho look.

And please see the About Shop section for more details.

Namaste

One Woman Bag Shop with a Passion for Reusing Materials and Found Fabrics

WELCOME!

...to Yoga's My Bag, where you'll see my love of sewing, recycling and yoga converge. I love using recycled materials. Many of my products have at least some part seeing its second life. It might be fabric from a dress found at an estate sale, a cotton sheet used as lining or beads from a thrifted necklace. Some of my upcycled bags made from pre-loved clothing were even featured in an edition of the super cool magazine Altered Couture.

Regardless of materials, all of my bags are well-made by me in a tiny room in Fort Worth, Texas that also houses my office (blessed to work from home), my sewing machines and way too much fabric. Because, don't you know, she who dies with the most fabric.... wins!

Throw your mat in a generously sized, one of a kind bag, add a towel or strap (plenty of room!), put your water bottle and gym card in separate pockets, clip your keys to the carabineer and get to class.

Along with the upcycled bags, I also make them in beautiful prints and batiks, the latter definitely a customer favorite. But even these are usually lined with a recycled sheet. See below for a complete list of features which will come with your bag.

FEATURES:

- Fabric used may come from my local fabric store but also is frequently purchased at estate sales. Many bags are made from gently used clothing. Note fabric may sometimes be found at thrift stores or in the closets or sewing rooms of an estate sale but I NEVER use stained or worn materials.
- All bags are lined in a coordinating fabric, usually from gently used sheets. No seams will show on your bag.
- All bags have a drawstring with cord stop which I think is quicker than a zipper. Bags are generously sized so your mat will slide in with ease. Roll, slide and cinch!
- All bags are accented with beads which might be glass, wooden, acrylic or metal but be assure they will coordinate beautifully with the fabric. Be sure and check out the close of up picture provided with each listing to see bead details. And if you love the fabric but hate the beads, just convo me and I can swap them out which something else.
- Most bags come with generous deep pocket wrapped around the entire circumference and then divided into three sections. Due to the limited amount of fabric in some upcycled bags, a few do not have pockets or might have an interior pocket so be sure and read the description.
- As all yogis are not made alike (and aren't we glad?!) most of bags come with a metal buckle adjustable strap. If you like a bag but it doesn't have an adjustable strap, convo me and I'll see if I can make it so.
- All of my newer bags come with a fabric loop inside the bag and a carabineer onto which you can clip your keys.

THANK YOU for visiting and let me know if you have any questions or would like a custom bag or skirt in a particular color or fabric. If you find something you like but it is sold out, please send me a convo as I may still have (or can get) that fabric or can design something similar.

Namaste
Sandra

Welcome to Yoga's My Bag! I'm a single mom from Texas with a love of sewing and yoga. In 2013, I combined the two to make a yoga bag that could make life easier but be super cool as well. I love using recycled materials and most of my yoga bags have some part seeing it's second life. It might be fabric from a dress found at a local estate sale, a cotton sheet used as a lining or beads from a second hand necklace.

Thank you for visiting and let me know if you have any questions or would like a custom made bag.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I welcome custom and personalized orders! It's great working with a customer to create their perfect bag. Tell me what colors you like and off we'll go!

Sizing details

All of my bags are the same size. They're approximately 33" long and 6 1/2" across in diameter. This size will fit thicker and longer mats as well so if you've got a regular size mat, there is plenty of room for a towel or small change of clothes.

Care instructions

Just about all of bags can be machine washed, ironed, and dried on normal cotton settings. There are only a few special fabrics which will need to be dry cleaned but these will be noted in the individual listing. Of course, always remove the beads before washing to avoid damage to the beads and your washer. Plus, they'll make an awful racket. Just unknot the cording and remove the beads.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Yes I'm happy to enclose a gift card for your recipient. When you order, there will be add ins available for this service.

Do any your bags have zippers?

No. I've found with the wider circumference of my bags, it's super easy to roll, stash and pull the corded closure shut.

Can I use your bags for my heavier mat such as the Manduka Pro?

Most of my bags are reinforced for the heavier mats. If you're using a heavier one, please let me know so I can confirm whether the bag you're looking will work. Note that some lighter fabrics will just not be appropriate.
