The Picnic Blanket Carrying Bag
Stuck in the apartment for yet another stormy day, I made a bag with a shoulder strap for carrying the picnic blanket. There is no pattern for this one. For the round ends on this duffle-style bag, I traced around a frisbee that Blaze had left laying on his bedroom floor. The large panel of fabric, I cut to match the width of the rolled-up blanket plus two inches. The length is the measurement around the circular panel plus two inches.
At the moment, the overlapping fabric at the opening of the duffle bag is being held closed by a couple squares of stick-on velcro, but I hope to replace that, as soon as possible, with a more attractive, black frog closure.
