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!
The work descriptions are in the Dutch language but you can easily translate them, or maybe the pictures are already enough to get the picture ;>)
Sew level: if you have some sewing experience it would not be a problem to sew the blanket and bag. You can also minimize the project buy skipping the quilting part. Just use a thick wool. And buy a nice application or just leave it away.
