How to Personalize Your Yoga Clothes

Have some super cute new yoga clothes, but you want to make them more personally your style? Here are some great ideas to alter, decorate, and personalize your yoga clothing so that it perfectly suits your style.
First, choose some yoga clothes that you really like, preferably in light colours such as white, pink, pale green, yellow, etc., as lighter colours are easier to work with when decorating, painting, and drawing.
Next, decide what you want to do to alter or decorate your clothes. Draw some pictures or write some ideas down while brainstorming. With a plan, you are less likely to make mistakes.
Here are some items you might use to decorate your yoga clothes: fabric paint, fabric markers and pens, sequins, embroidery thread, beads, buttons, felt embellishments, ribbon, lace, charms, etc. For some great supplies, visit your local craft store or buy some vintage buttons or jewellery online.
These are some ideas to get you started:
1.    Put your name on one of your yoga shirts. Use fabric paint, embroider your name, or use glue and glitter to write the letters.
2.    Design a flower or a heart on your shirt or the leg of your yoga pants. You could use paint, glitter, beads, buttons, or a long piece of ribbon to outline your design.
3.    Decorate the cuffs of your shirts. Sew beads around the cuffs, or embroider little flowers. You can find tutorials for easy embroidery stitches online.
4.    Don’t have the guts? Take your favourite yoga shirt to your local screen printer and ask them to put a design on the shirt for you professionally. Less mess, and less potential for mistakes.

As you plan to decorate your yoga clothing, remember to try to express your personality and make your clothing your own. Imagine how your friends will ask you wear you got your clothes!
