Upcycled Personal Picnic Blankets
I’ve always been intrigued with the way flour sacks were turned into so many other things: clothes, pajamas, quilts and tea towels. I often wondered “What is the modern day equivalent of the flour sack?” So many goods now come in polywoven bags, and I wanted incorporate them into a functional item, as well as keeping them out of the landfill. I came up with the idea of a “personal upcycled picnic blanket”. This blanket provides a moisture barrier from the polywoven bag, and the top is lightly quilted. I like the romantic notion of keeping it in the car, so that if you find yourself in a beautiful spot, you could pull over, enjoy the moment and set for a spell.
