I haven't made one (I do really need one though...), but when I was out searching for a different bag pattern today I came across this one: http://boredandcrafty.com/index.php/...-bag-tutorial/

Well I didn't set out to make a yoga mat, i was making a hop-scotch mat for dd but it has since been used for yoga and works well.

I used a rectangular piece of flannel as it has a bit of grip to it. I applique hop-scotch squares to it but you could leave it plain or sew any design you want on it. Mine was a single layer of fabric but two layers with a bit of batting in between would be nicer. I then cut a rectangle slightly smaller than my flannel piece out of the rubberized mesh that you can put under area rugs so they don't slip. (I can't remember what it's called) I hand stitched the rubber to the mat.

The rubber keeps the mat from slipping around on the floor and the flannel gives some friction for your hands and feet.

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.)0(
