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!)
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!
