How can I make it functional?

I'm disappointed . . . although my yoga mat bag is lovely to look at, it is soooo hard to take the yoga mat in and out because of the intense friction. I thought it might be because the bag is made of a rough wool so I figured I'd sew a lining for it. But it even sticks to the smoothest of cotton fabric. It's probably because the mat is made of latex (super grippy) and that's the point of a yoga mat, I know. But it takes me too long to get the dang thing in and out the bag! And after a bit of a struggle, it never goes in nicely rolled. I'm having a difficult time thinking of ways to ameliorate the situation to make it functional. I mean, I'm making it do what it do but it would be nice just to be able to easily slip it in and out.

So crafty folks, any suggestions?

Well, this isn't directly a helpful comment as to your yoga mat problems, but I do want to say that I greatly appreciate your blog! I admire your strength and spirituality, and will be proudly sharing your blog and links to your homebirth story to women who are due in July 2009 like I am and are planning a homebirth, or even just a natural birth. Consider me another stalker - I mean, follower! :P
