How to Make a Picnic Blanket
A homemade picnic blanket makes for a great gift or a fun, simple sewing project. While you do need to know how to sew to make one, it’s not a particularly difficult project to complete compared to many other items. To make a picnic blanket, select a thick, durable fabric for your blanket and purchase at least 2 sheets of the fabric. Get a layer of flexible vinyl if you want to waterproof the underside of your blanket. Then, set your fabric with the pattern facing down. Add any padding or cotton batting on top if you want a fluffier blanket. Lay the second layer of fabric on top and sew the edges to secure them. You can also add straps if you want to store your blanket using strips of nylon and special fabric Velcro strips.

In just a few minutes, the gentle abrasives in the toothpaste will help remove dust, dirt, grime, and light-dimming oxidation, making your headlights shine brighter and clearer.
