hi it’s AlaskaGranny

2
00:00:03,139 –> 00:00:07,560
do you like yoga will if you so you probably want a strap to carry your

3
00:00:07,560 –> 00:00:10,620
mat or pad around because this can be uncomfortable

4
00:00:10,620 –> 00:00:14,049
and not very handy when you are getting

5
00:00:14,049 –> 00:00:17,699
in and out of your car

6
00:00:17,699 –> 00:00:22,119
no matter how thick your yoga mat or pad is or if you roll a towel up inside

7
00:00:22,119 –> 00:00:25,830
I am going to show you how to make a strap with

8
00:00:25,830 –> 00:00:30,769
3 feet of cord and 2 D rings it is very simple

9
00:00:30,769 –> 00:00:34,760
I bought three feet of it is actually like

10
00:00:34,760 –> 00:00:37,850
like a strap like would be

11
00:00:37,850 –> 00:00:41,290
on a purse or gym bag something

12
00:00:41,290 –> 00:00:44,300
and then the first thing you want to do
is

13
00:00:44,300 –> 00:00:47,600
sizzle the ends so it doesn’t unravel

14
00:00:47,600 –> 00:00:51,170
just like you would your paracord just
run

15
00:00:51,170 –> 00:00:54,530
the flame along it to seal the edges

16
00:00:54,530 –> 00:01:00,090
next you need your two D-rings this is
one inch wide

17
00:01:00,090 –> 00:01:04,000
and these are just a little bit larger
so that my strap is going to go through

18
00:01:04,000 –> 00:01:08,450
and I’m going to fold it over like this and
stitch it

19
00:01:08,450 –> 00:01:12,659
on my sewing machine or by hand if you
don’t have a machine and just go back

20
00:01:12,659 –> 00:01:13,810
and forth right here

21
00:01:13,810 –> 00:01:16,960
to secure your first D ring

22
00:01:16,960 –> 00:01:23,500
on to the strap

23
00:01:23,500 –> 00:01:30,500
go back and forth to lock the thread just go forward and back a few times

24
00:01:37,880 –> 00:01:38,590
and that’s all the sewing

25
00:01:42,520 –> 00:01:49,520
fold the Strap and tuck it in like this through the D rings

26
00:01:52,550 –> 00:01:57,640
and make a nice big loop once you have your loop you

27
00:01:57,640 –> 00:02:01,000
put it around the end of your yoga mat

28
00:02:01,000 –> 00:02:05,000
and you pull it up and that’s going to hold it
securely

29
00:02:05,000 –> 00:02:08,410
put it around

30
00:02:08,410 –> 00:02:13,320
my neck and loop it around to figure out

31
00:02:13,320 –> 00:02:16,530
exactly where I want the other

32
00:02:16,530 –> 00:02:20,170
D ring to be so there might be a little
extra

33
00:02:20,170 –> 00:02:23,560
but I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t going to be too short

34
00:02:23,560 –> 00:02:26,560
so figure out exactly how you want it

35
00:02:26,560 –> 00:02:31,240
where you want it sideways over your shoulder
however is comfortable

36
00:02:31,240 –> 00:02:36,320
for you and mark where that is and that’s
where you are going to sew

37
00:02:36,320 –> 00:02:42,060
your second D ring right there so cut off the extra

38
00:02:42,060 –> 00:02:49,060
tail and I’m going to sizzle it again

39
00:02:50,730 –> 00:02:57,730
since it shorter than when I first started

40
00:03:04,720 –> 00:03:07,720
now I’m going to insert the other D ring

41
00:03:07,720 –> 00:03:12,690
fold it over like it did the first side
and run my sewing machine

42
00:03:12,690 –> 00:03:17,190
or hand stitch if you need to back and
forth across here a few times

43
00:03:17,190 –> 00:03:22,210
same as the first side go back and forth a few
times and you are done

44
00:03:22,210 –> 00:03:29,210

45
00:03:40,140 –> 00:03:46,260
take your D ring

46
00:03:46,260 –> 00:03:50,920
full the strap and stick it through and I
have a nice big loop

47
00:03:50,920 –> 00:03:54,090
and this loop goes around the end of the yoga mat

48
00:03:54,090 –> 00:04:00,310
on this Side and the other end I do the
exact same thing

49
00:04:00,310 –> 00:04:03,900
stick the Loop through the D ring

50
00:04:03,900 –> 00:04:08,709
hook it over the yoga mat and pull it up

51
00:04:11,819 –> 00:04:15,069
for about 5 dollars I have a strap that

52
00:04:15,069 –> 00:04:18,829
is just the size and color that I like

53
00:04:18,829 –> 00:04:22,740
I am ready to take it to class I don’t have to worry about it being

54
00:04:22,740 –> 00:04:25,949
dropped unrolled when I don’t want it to

55
00:04:25,949 –> 00:04:29,349
when I get to class I simply pull off the ends of the strap

56
00:04:29,349 –> 00:04:32,930
unroll my mat

57
00:04:32,930 –> 00:04:36,949
