Using this great pattern from Erin -one of my favorite craft bloggers- posted at Sew Mama Sew (and with my mom’s help and encouragement during the holiday break), I made this great picnic blanket for my sister, Nicky. With her almost 8 month old twins, I thought she might be doing some hanging out at the park once the weather warmed up, and having an outdoor blanket will make it slightly easier… that is until the boys starting really moving!
The pattern was very easy to follow and includes the addition of rock pockets – brilliant! I was excited to add our new labels, which matched so perfectly with the browns from the blanket.
I added four long ties to one side – that way the blanket could be tied up like a sleeping bag as pictured or longways like a yoga mat.
The blanket was fun to make, and I hope I’ll get the chance to picnic with Nic and the boys this summer!
