DIY Yoga Mat Bag, Mat Spray & Post-Yoga Coverup

We yogis (yes, you too) tend to be quite eco-conscious. It's something about the whole yoga-is-connection thing. Makes us want to do good in the world. Or at least, make ethical choices (which can still be stylish) & do as little harm as possible.

To help you with your rather admirable eco goals, here are three great DIY's - you can use fabric you already have, or source ethically made fabric and the mat cleaner is chemical free. Win!

Such a great tee, and so easy to make. This is just perfect for a bit of warmth and modesty on the way to and from yoga, and it'd be great to stop you from getting too cold during a restorative or yin yoga session too. It's from Peppermint Magazine and you can even download and print the pattern! See it at their Sewing School.
