When you go on a picnic or to the beach, what's the first thing you do? Lay out the blanket, right? What's the second thing you do? Chase after the corners that are flying from the wind!
Instead of holding them down with bags, shoes, or coolers, how about weighing down those corners? Using the pocket idea from Sew Mama Sew, here is another Pinteresting Adventure! We added corner pockets to our watermelon picnic blanket (basically just two yards of cotton fabric), filled the corners with sand, and that was it! Not one corner flew up once and this was a super windy day at the beach. I'll have to remember to add these pockets to all our outdoor blankets.
P.S. - Watermelon Day is August 3rd!
