The Equinox Yoga Bag is your new favorite yoga mat bag! Three sizes are included to accommodate almost any mat size. This bag features a small zipper pocket for securing essentials like your ID and credit cards, a large elastic pocket for yoga towels and water bottles, and a center mesh panel to allow airflow through your bag to allow your mat to dry and breathe. The roomy main compartment opens with a long zipper to hold your mat. It is designed as a soft structure bag, made in canvas and lined in cotton or stretch woven, though you may customize your fabric choices for more structure if desired!

Fabric Requirements 

  • 1 yard (or 1 1/4 yard for large yoga mat) medium-weight woven Exterior fabric (canvas recommended)
  • 1 yard light-weight woven Lining fabric (cotton recommended) 
  • 1/3 yard utility/nonstretch mesh (you can layer stretch mesh over the top of nonstretch mesh if you would like to use a designed mesh like The Styled Magnolia offers!)
  • 7”x3” piece of foam (a few layers of fusible fleece can be used instead if you prefer)


Fabric Selection

This is a soft structure bag, and medium-weight woven fabric such as canvas is recommended for this pattern, though you may use a lighter-weight woven such as cotton. If sewing on a domestic machine, you can use stretch woven as your lining (which does not need interfacing) to help reduce bulk in the seams. 



  • 2 yards of lightweight interfacing for the small and medium yoga mat bag, 3 yards for large yoga mat bag (SF101 recommended). Add an additional 1 yard if using lighter weight woven fabric for the exterior that needs to be interfaced twice, such as cotton. 



  • 1 1/2” Hardware: (2) rectangle rings, (1) slider
  • #5 Zipper Tape with 2 zipper pulls 
    • 36” for small size yoga mat bag, cut to 29” and 7”
    • 38” for medium size yoga mat bag, cut to 31” and 7”
    • 41” for large size yoga mat bag, cut to 34” and 7”
  • 1 Handmade Tag (optional) 
  • 1 1/2 yards of 1.5” of sturdy webbing
  • 8” of stable 1/2” (braided or non-roll) elastic
  • 4 yards 1/2” wide double fold bias tape


Other Materials 

  • Double Sided Tape
