A new bag!
I’ve joined a gym — and I’ve decided that if I made myself a bag it would be extra motivation to actually go. I didn’t need one — I even have a ‘typical’ gym bag (you know the one; with the gym’s logo on it!!) but I had been using a small beach bag instead — and it was too small and akward.
It’s versatile — I can wear it on my shoulder  on slinged on my back  (which was necesarry since the kiddos come to the gym with me from time to time and I need 2 hands free to get from the van to the gym!) I can also tie  it if I want — which is fantastic — this way if i use it for anything else – or if I want to keep 2 monkeys out of my bag it’s easily done. I can also tie it ‘open’  on something — which can also be useful.
I made a large pocket so that i can bring lots of water from home – so I do not have to drink the chlorine tasting gym water! I made 2 inside pockets — and now I know that i’ve placed them a little too low on the inside of the bag. My shoes go at the bottom and compete for space with whatever is in the pockets. I should have placed them at least shoe hight from the bottom of the bag. Now I know!
Made and used in the same day — that’s always fun!
