I was asked to make another yoga mat bag last week – here it is! I love this colour combination… it is for a green yoga mat so I thought the colours would compliment it well. Remember – you can also purchase one from my shop on etsy.

This wonderful crochet owl cushion took me a while to make but was well worth it. I got the pattern from ATERGcrochet on etsy and used a variety of cotton DK yarn, sometimes doubling it up to make a thicker yarn and I used a 5.0mm or 5.5mm crochet hook I think. Mum sewed the fabric [...]
