How to sew a Picnic Blanket
The concept of a picnic blanket is often as follows: it is a nice thick blanket, you roll it up and take it with you on the back of the bike or you hang it under your backpack as a folded roll.
But this idea, originally from an old 1997 BURDA, is much better. And more chic! Fold this picnic blanket three times in length and twice in width and voila: it's a bag. How is that possible? It's quite simple: the bag is sewn to the picnic blanket! Country Chic!
