Striped Picnic Blanket

James and I love going on picnics, but finding a pretty picnic blanket that we don’t mind getting dirty at an affordable price has proven to be a challenge.  So, I decided to make a simple one myself using fabric I already had at home and fabric paint in two colors.


To get started I cut out a large square of fabric and hemmed each side with a sewing machine. I drew out the pattern on a piece of paper beforehand, and used a ruler and masking tape to tape off the sections that would be painted. I then painted in the stripes and let the paint dry completely (at least 4 hours).


The final product is pretty, comfortable, and affordable. I’m excited to take this new blanket to many picnics and beach days this summer.
