What’s needed to make a Store and Go Crossbody Bag:
Depending on the purpose of the bag, you can use different woven fabric types. Use waterproof nylon/canvas fabric with non-stretch mesh when using the bag to store or carry a yoga/exercise mat. The mesh fabric promotes airflow and decreases drying time of your yoga /exercise mat. For other purposes any mid-to-heavy weight woven fabric can be used. Examples are: Quilting Cotton, Denim, Faux Leather, Canvas, Waterproof Canvas or Nylon, and Outdoor Fabrics.
