International Yoga Day! Namaste.
In honor of International Yoga Day... we bring you, Namaste Collection!

Breathe in, breathe out and find your center while sewing a yoga mat or a peaceful wall hanging.
**Helpful hint- back your mat with non-slip drawer liner so the mat won't slip around.
The yoga mat and the wall hanging/floor Mat below were designed by the Whimsical Workshop and are available to download on our website.
 Do you need a bag to carry around your yoga mat and accessories?
 The Motherload Tote by Cozy Nest Designs is the prefect yoga bag!

We also have Namaste available on Minky! It's so soft and cuddly... perfect for a calming eye mask, a yoga pillow or a blanket...
Happy first day of Summer and International Yoga Day!

Keep Calm and Yoga On!
