What you need for the picnic blanket:

  • Fabric / fabric cut: each Rowan fabric: one strip of 30 x 110 cm
    Ferns Art. No. PWGP147-YELLO
    Thousand Flowers Art. No. PWGP144-CHALK
    Labels Art. No. PWBM045-AQUAX
    Thousand Flowers Art. No. PWGP144-PINKX
  • Plain fabric: 10 x 110 cm Art. No. CSFSESS-HONEY

All data are inclusive seam allowance

  • Fleece: 110 x 140 cm volume fleece 295 (Freudenberg)
  • 505 cm purple bias binding by Milward 10 mm wide
  • Matching Coats Cotton Sewing Thread
  • 140 cm white cord 4mm thick
  • scissors
  • tape measure
  • ruler

And this is how it's done (find pictures under the article in the download):

1. Sew the fabric strips together as shown.

2. Place the front left to the left on the back, place the fleece in between, pin and sew through all the fabric layers in the seam shadow of the strips.

3. Round off all corners with the template (to be found under the article in the download). To do this, place the template on the corner, transfer the rounding with a pencil and cut back the fabric along this line.

4. Cover the ceiling with the bias binding. To do this, fold up the bias binding and sew on first at the edge on the front of the blanket. Put a fold in the corners at right angles. Then beat the bias tape backwards. Due to the folds at the corners, the bias binding can be placed nicely around the corners. Then fasten with pins and stitch on the front of the bias tape narrow edge.

5. Cut the cord in half and secure both cord pieces to a narrow side. For this, mark the middle and sew on a piece of cord with multiple stitches by hand at a distance of 10 cm to both sides.

6. When folding, roll the blanket in third and then tie the wrapping with the cord.
