DIY Garden Blanket
I have been wanting nice simple blankets to have for the summer season.
For the front yardt of our summer house, maybe to bring to a picnic or to the beach.
Big enough for the whole clan but easy enough to be able to bring it along on adventures!
They are 150x150cm.
So I made the back out of black and white dotted oilcloth
(the same as for the Stokke chair cushions) from Ikea.
Since I don’t really know if it washable (I realised it to late)
I would recomend to make it white some you know you can wash.
(Ok, I couldn’t fint the oil cloth at Ikeas homepage but one of our readers did (thank you!)
The fabric is called Lialotta and supposedly washable in 40 degrees.
The thing is that I made another pacifier string to Beppe with some leftover oil cloth and
it just happened to get washed by accident
– I found that a lot of the black color dissapeared in the wash.
But lets cross fingers that it will not with this blanket!)
The fabric on top is made by Lotta Khulhorn for Ikea (fabric is called Malena – very cheap).
I made it as a classic bed sheet so you can tke out the blanket inside and wash the sheet.
It ws cheaper to buy two of Ikeas blankets as a filling blanket then to buy cotton wool/wadding!
Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.
Very nice! If it is Lialotta oil cloth /vävplast you can wash it in 40°C (IKEA:s homepage).
I´m impressed by your fantastic garden! Very nice idea, these blankets!
Best regards, Marjolijn
What a fantastic idea. The blankets are beautiful and I love your fabric choices.
I love it! It is absolutely gorgeous. Good for you! Baby looks so comfortable. Wonderful.
Yes, the gorgeous weathered timber and the garden almost steal the show from the great blanket!
Summer + garden + picknic

Det där med att sy…snart finns det inga ursäkter. Jag måste lära mig! (Att ha tålamod tex)
Jenny: Så känner jag med. Har dåligt tålamod. Sticka går lite bättre. men det kanske du redan kan
