Crocheted Pilates Mat Bag Finished

Hello!  I finished this cover last weekend but I've been so busy that I haven't been able to post about it until now.  I sorta followed 2 different patterns as an outline for this project.  I did it all in sc and then made the opening a bit longer and did a dc for the loops to put the drawstring through.  I added the green edging to help form a kinda pom-pom flower look at the top to match the strap.  I used all but about 2 feet of the 2 skeins and had the plain green in my stash and I like how it turned out.  In the pic it's hard to see the green that runs throughout the yarn; it's a green strand and another color and is self striping.  I got compliments on it this week at class.  It sure makes it easier to hold onto from car to class.

Here's a few pix of my Hawaiian dance and Pilates classes.  Feels good to be exercising again.

Pilates class hadn't started; the room is usually mat to mat!  Can anyone guess which mat is mine?  

That's all for now, hope you have a wonderful weekend and find some hookie time!  I'm off, bound for Joann's to get some gray yarn...

Your mat bag is terrific! The colors are great. It had to take you a while to make it too being in all sc. Very cool.

Wow I am so impressed. I love those colors together. I need to MAKE myself finish my poor daughter shawlette - she has been waiting for it about 6 months. ;) The pilates class sounds fun.

What a great idea. I agree, the colors are wonderful.

Hi Annieliz, I finally have a little time to catch up with you (taking a little break from work and sneaking in some blog reading, he he). It's terrible about the trees, and Oaks too...I thought it was against the law to cut down Oaks! Perhaps they'll put in other plants/trees in their place?!

I really love your mat cover, I'm going to have to make something similar with the frilly edging on top. Very nicely done :-)

Thanks for your last comment on my blog, really made me smile. We have Filipino hubbies in common! Your kids must have that beautiful anglo-asian combination...your chauffer son is quite handsome!

Have a great weekend...xxJ
