DIY pocketed picnic blanket

Functional and fun this DIY is… not sure why I’m talking like Yoda but the point is, this DIY Pocketed Picnic Blanket/Functional Festival Blanket (we couldn’t decide what to call it) is perfect for Coachella or any picnicing needs. Wind won’t be blowing your blanket away because with these pocketed corners, you can organize your stuff and keep those corners weighed down and your stuff organized!…love this I do.

Prep It:

  • picnic blanket (I got this one from Bed Bath and Beyond)
  • fabric for your pockets – I used a stretchy bathing suit fabric to make the pockets expandable
  • hot glue gun
  • fabric hot glue sticks
  • scissors

DO IT!:

  1. Cut four triangle shapes for each corner of your blanket – remember to leave a couple extra inches for seam
  2. Start at the corner point of your blanket and hot glue your fabric face down then fold back to create a clean fold over instead of a raw edge – you can trim the excess if you have a rounded corner like mine.
  3. Continue gluing up the sides of your blanket away from the corner, folding over as you go to create a clean folded edge. Tip: in order to make a clean corner you might have to create extra folds and glue them neatly in place. Practice first to get a clean look before you glue it down permenantely.
  4. Pack it away with the rest of your festival gear and enjoy!

I love this! I know you have already done the project, but is there anyway you can do this on your YouTube channel? I never really understand blog step by steps, I am a visual VIDEO learner lol. Anyway, love you and your blog been following for along time now. You are a HUGE inspiration to me, thank you! xoox

I feel so silly, I looked over it again and realized how you did it, I can be a little slow at times. LOL Thanks for responding! I know how long it takes to write people back, so I can really appreciate that, thank you! xoxox

I love this idea. I will probably do one. Have you ever shopped at Family Dollar Stores. They have a lot of household accessories you might find interesting. I especially like their prices on their wall art.
