This is a kit to make your own polyester quilt. Once completed, this blanket can last several generations and be the centerpiece for endless outdoor adventures! Here's a tutorial for how to make your own picnic blanket! Consider it the instructions for this kit.
Good old Double Knit Polyester. It's terrible to wear, and it lasts forever - which is a double whammy - it's kind of an abomination against Mother Nature. In spite of the decades since its heyday, there's still an abundance of this stuff. It's not going anywhere, so we might as well make something useful with it. It's great for making really ugly, invincible picnic blankets.
I always keep one in my car in case of a picnic or music festival; one never knows when a picnic or music festival might present itself and it's good to be prepared. They're also great for draping over your porch swing for chilly mornings as they're pretty weatherproof.
