Beach blanket

Ready for biggest easiest project ever? I realized after using this blanket again this weekend that I never shared it.

I whipped this little puppy up the night before my first Hawaii trip with Tuesday. I had visions of us sitting on the beach, her serenely playing on a blanket while I read a book. But wait! No blanket I had could squeeze into my already packed suitcase. So I took a few of my favorite prints pieced them together for the front. The back was a fun sheet. I put the right sides together, sewed around the edge, leaving a gap for turning right side out. After I turned it right side out I pressed the edge and went around the whole thing with a top stitch. Done!

Super thin and lightweight. I use it every time we go to any beach. I think you should make one for this summer tonight!

  1. Awesome idea! Are you sure you can’t stay longer this summer….I could use someone up here to “whip” stuff like this up in a night. It would take me a week to “whip” up something that cool! The way it folds up so small would be great for hike in picnics, or anywhere really. The less I have to carry around the better! Plus I love the off-square design. So modern of you!
