Every Monday I take a two-hour yoga class. We do about an hour of yoga, then meditation, a spiritual reading, discussion, and Savasana. We end with tea and cookies, and it is the absolute perfect way to start out the week. Penny comes with me and hangs out in the child care room with a couple other kiddos and fabulous nursery ladies. She absolutely loves it, and as soon as we walk in the door, she goes "Bye, Mommy!". She can't wait to have her play time. We bring the kids in for the tea and cookies portion of the morning, and that is a huge hit as well. As soon as I walk into the nursery to get her, she's like "Tea? Tea? Cookies?" Not "Hi, Mommy." Show me the cookies.
The only problem is that I find myself juggling my toddler, my purse, Penny's bag for the nursery, and my yoga mat. I just don't have enough arms, so it was time to hit the sewing room. I used this pattern from Amy Butler. I would definitely call this an intermediate project. I completed it in two naptimes. What? Is that not how you measure time? Ok, maybe 4-5 hours then.
I thought the pocket fabric just screamed yoga, but I bought it as a remnant, so I didn't have enough for the whole bag. Luckily I had millions of yards of the floral print that matched well enough. It has three large pockets on the outside, perfect for cell phone, keys...yoga straps? But my absolute favorite thing about it? Here's what it looks like hanging in its spot in the garage:
