now that the weather is warming up, we can’t wait to start spending more quality time out of doors. this double-sided blanket is perfect for entertaining (or being entertained) on your next picnic or camping trip. the vinyl side keeps your backside dry, and the soft and cozy flannel is great for stretching out on. flip over a corner and you’ve got the perfect spot for drinks and snacks. we’ve made a few of these over the years and they’ve always made “roughin’ it” a little less rough.
