For about two years I have had intentions of making a vintage sheet picnic blanket, inspired by one I saw that even had rock pockets included so you could pop rocks (or something heavy) in them to weight the blanket down.
Cue my collection of vintage sheets and a sewing machine kindly lent to me from a friend.
An hour or so later... one picnic blanket... with pieces of vintage sheets I have collected in Northland, NZ ..so its kinda special too!
I sewed 16 large squares together
Sewed the back on and turned it out the right way, whipped around the edge with the sewing machine.
Then sewed buttons where each of the squares meet...
Oh how I love the wee rock pockets in the corners.... just need to find some rocks to use..

*oh and we went to the beach... to the picnic...and didnt even use it!! hahaha.. we got a picnic table under the shade instead... but its all ready for next time.. just going to add some ties so I can roll it up.
