(Originally posted 6-30-06) I saw a picnic blanket at Walmart for $14.96. After carefully examining this blanket I have decided that it can be made for a lot less. Take a shower curtain liner (bought at DollarTree for $1) and an old but usable blanket and sew the liner to the blanket, add shoe string ties and a handle and WOW! a picnic blanket that has just cost maybe $3 total compared to the $15 at WalMart.

Thank you! I was wondering why a picnic blanket would cost SO much. It's ridiculous, i couldn't even find one on ebay for less than $8 (not to mention adding shipping) USED!
What's wrong with a good old fashioned blanket?
