I just made this yesterday with a few mods. I used a pair of mens cargo pants, so had to put the drawstring above the pocket instead of using the bottom hem folded over. I also sewed the strap with the drawstring ends to the pants (below the drawstring casing) because i have a really heavy mat and needed the extra security. The mens pants I used were xtra baggy so it's long and wide enough to fit my Manduka Pro mat and my yoga towel! Thanks for the great pattern!
