The Crafter in Me Made a Yoga Mat Bag for the Yogi in Me

From Comfy Crafter

I just finished this cute yoga mat bag! It's completely my own design although, there isn't much room for creativity, a yoga bag is a pretty standard size. It fits a mat that rolls up to be about 5 inches in diameter. I put an extra strip of fabric inside to give it pockets and added padding to the handles for comfort. I think the contrasting fabric inside is nice but you don't see enough of it, I should have made the whole bag out of the paisley fabric and made the pocket out of the contrast. It's also made from cotton fabric so it is easy to wash.

Here is the inside:

What do you think? Would YOU carry this yoga mat bag? :D

Playing with Fondant with My SIL

Fondant Fairies
From Drop Box

I spent yesterday with my sister-in-law hanging out; we had a wonderful time making these adorable fairies out of fondant. It is really very hard,so much detail work! I had never worked with fondant before so I helped with the simple things like the legs. :) I tried to make the arms but they looked more like linebackers than fairies. We made several versions before we settled on these. Aren't they adorable?

My sister-in-law makes cakes and has a wonderful blog with recipes and cake decorating ideas. She is making a fairy cake for a client that these little fairies will sit on.
