When I go on a picnic, I usually throw down an old sheet to sit on, which has the benefits of the vintage look not to mention thrift. But the drawback is we too often arise with damp behinds. If I was a more frequent picnicker, I might think about this seriously deluxe waterproof blanket, with its generous size, cute stripes, hidden zipper pocket, and carrying handle and elastic straps. Lots of other fabrics and patterns available.
