First, you will need to go to the store and buy 2 yards of cotton webbing, 1 1/2 inches wide. Webbing is commonly used for bag straps and belts. You may want to tape the ends, as they will fray a bit. Also pick up a strap adjuster, metal or plastic. (Two D-rings would also work just fine.) You will need thread and a sewing machine for the next steps.
Finish one of the edges with a zig-zag stitch set to the widest zig-zag possible and a stitch length of 0.5. Make sure you backstitch well on the ends.
Pull the other end through the strap adjuster. I found this one on an old shoulder bag. (If you had two D-rings, you’d pull the strap through both of them at the same time.)
Loop the end back and secure it about 3/4″ from the metal with a zig-zag stitch. I also reinforced with a straight line of stitching just inside my zig-zag.
The loop should look like the picture, above.
Now, take the free zig-zagged end of the strap and pull it through the strap adjuster.
Your yoga strap is all ready to go! I actually don’t do yoga on a regular basis, but I’m going to use this baby to stretch out my hamstring, V-Mo and IT band leg muscles. I had been using a robe tie, so this is a nice step up and only cost me $5 for the webbing. Yay!
