Funny, when I saw this #goforgold wrap called Wear it Proud (oh and $3.50 from the sale of this wrap goes towards female Olympic athletes!) I really wanted it even though I am Canadian and the colours are kind of American.
Wasn't sure why but I had to have it.
Well we bought a new trailer (pics to come ) so of course I had to empty out the old one.
I came across this picnic blanket that I made 20 years ago. I had cut up old jeans and used scrap fabric and went to work. I'm no quilter but had an idea.
This super large, super heavy blanket has been used a lot over the years and has many memories tied to it. Looking at it makes my heart happy . Now I will definitely Wear it Proud . #thrifting#upcycling #memories #happyheart
I had added the jean pockets to hold keys and wallets.
As the years past, different items went into them....
including cell phones :)
It is very faded now, but I backed it with fleece (it was on sale and we were on a budget)
Made pockets on the back and added straps.
The blanket then became a tote for some of our picnic things.
Of course this was before the invention of Thirty One ;)
Isn't it funny how something so simple as a blanket
can bring up past memories.
Just like old songs.
What do you have that stirs up good memories?
I would love to hear them :)
So I couldn't leave without sharing the manicure that was inspired by the blanket.
Wear it Proud, Lakeside and a Stylebox Exclusive wrap.
