sports blanket

It's March and my oldest son is well into his little league baseball season. Which means LONG games many of which are in the cold and rain. I was trying to come up with a good solution to help keep me warm and think I may have stumbled upon something. This is what I made.

I took an old vinyl tablecloth that I used for picnics and lined it with about 2 yards of lime green fleece. I serged around the edges (no need to flip and turn) and then sewed a seam around to secure it.
I'm thinking the vinyl will help roll the water away when it rains and the fleece will help hold in some warmth.

That, or it will be great for laying around in the sun on!

I have a denim lap quilt to finish before soccer season starts, but mine won't be waterproof - cool idea!

This is such a great idea. The fleece side would be so soft too! Thanks for sharing at Fun to Craft's Spring has Sprung Party.
