In case you weren't able to make it over to my guest post at "Someday Crafts" last week, I thought I would go ahead and share my tutorial for a Waterproof Picnic Blanket! I thought this would be a really fun spring/summer tutorial to share with you that is super simple and VERY useful!
Have you ever been outside for a picnic only to lay your blanket down are realize the ground is damp? Well, that is no fun and kind of ruins the picnic experience. So, make yourself one of these waterproof picnic blankets and you will never have to worry about wet ground again!
1 Vinyl Tablecloth (52 x 90) or smaller if you prefer
1 Cloth Tablecloth (similar size to vinyl) or 2 yards of your favorite fabric
Ribbon or Rick Rack for trim
I used left over fabric I had from the cloth tablecloth - the stuff I had to cut off to make sure the top and bottom were the same size. You could also use ribbon if you prefer.
Once you have stitched three sides, turn your ties right-side out and press.
Turn the blanket right-side out and press lightly.
Here is your blanket all wrapped up and ready for a fun day with family and friends!
Cottage Mama's Note: You can also use oilcloth for this project, but the vinyl tablecloth was the more inexpensive option. This vinyl backed tablecloth would also be great as an actual tablecloth. Just eliminate the ties and presto, you have a waterproof tablecloth that still looks classy, but will protect your table as well!!
