the picnic roll
The first project I thought to try from my recently finished reading Rhythm of Family was the picnic roll. Of course it was the night before we were off on our camping trip. Nothing like a bit of rushed sewing as you have packing and suitcases strewn around the house.
I used an old tablecloth for the outer and it was lined with some vintage sheeting. Attached and tied up with mismatched lace. It was really very easy to sew and probably took me an hour from start to finish.
I even had time to whip up a few napkins from scrap cotton.
It certainly proved useful while on our camping trip. We used our picnic basket almost every day while away. With our picnic roll (filled with op shop cutlery), plates, cups, thermos and decanted tea, coffee and sugar permanently packed in our picnic basket, all we needed was to add some food and we were good to go.
For those that have the book, I'm wondering what projects do you have in mind to make or have already made?
