My friend has two of her kids getting married, one month apart from each other this summer! (Talk about busy!) She is putting together a beach-themed basket together for each shower which will include some of my various beach bags. She was also considering a beach blanket. I have not seen many beach blankets in the DIY world, so I took a tour and found these various pins.
This one is made from napkins.
This is a clever blanket made from beach blankets cut apart. I especially like her construction method and it gives me an idea about another project….
This one was created using bandannas.
Sometimes a vintage chenille bedspread is used as a backing fabric. In the above photo, a home dec weight fabric is used.
When I was asking for input on favorite beach blankets, a few of you suggested sheets since the sand doesn’t stick to them and they are lightweight.
Things that I like are
- A good size. The size of a twin bedspread is 80″ x 110″, about 6.5′ x 9′.
- Lightweight, but with enough weight to not blow about in the wind.
- Dries quickly
