Practical and fun
I bought 3 of these for my daughters and myself in Doodle Daisy. We all love it! So far has gone to the beach and on picnics. I love the nylon fabric as fleece and regular blankets pick up leaves, etc. This is the first item we've had to take to the beach that wasn't wet and completely sand filled at the end of the day. I hope you re-issue in new colors as I'd like to give as gifts. Thanks for something I've looked for for years!

So happy with this blanket!
i keep this blanket in my car and have used it so many times! i've only used it on grass and even when it's a little wet you can stay on and it will keep you dry. I've used it as a seat cushion for bleachers too! Totally would recommend!

Great for playdates!
I was on the market for a great picnic blanket for park playdates with my 2 month old baby. Saw this one on sale and decided to give it a try. Today it was particularly muddy so the blanket came in handy. I was concerned that the mud stains wouldn't come out, but I threw it in the washing machine on cold and tumble dried on low/delicate and it came out sparkling new! It is a bit complicated to fold up the first time you do it, but there are seams to help and a careful study of how it folded up helped me get it zipped up again. I may buy another to keep in my husband's car!

Love the color, love the size!
This is perfect to keep in the car. It is totally gorgeous! It will also be awesome as a cushion for those hard bleachers. I do wish it had come with instructions on how to fold it back up.

Perfect for keeping in the car
I bought this because I am always traveling in my car. Whether work, school, or to see family and friends, I'm always going somewhere. This picnic blanket has come in handy at the beach, the park, and even in the backyard. I did origianlly think it was a plush blanket, but it's nylon which is even better!

I bought this for my administrative assistant's birthday. I took a guess that this blanket might come in handy for her grandchildren.She started out thinking that it it was a tote and politely thanked me. When she unzipped it and realized what it was she REALLY thanked me. It is waterproof (I think) and also sand proof. A great thing to throw in your car and leave there. It is easy to fold and re-zipper into a flat square package.

Just received my Vera Bradley Picnic Blanket today, in the Summer Cottage pattern. The colors are so gorgeous....perfect summer colors....perfect for Fourth of July celebrations. I plan on using it at the local pool, to lay on the grassy area, and then put our beach towels on top of for laying in the sun. Perfect for outdoor picnics, or to lay on your livingrooom floor for an indoor picnic. I can't wait to use this!!! Stylish and functional!!!

We went camping over the weekend; this is the perfect solution for the beach. I can't stand laying my towel in the sand because it gets all sandy; instead we put this down first and put all our stuff on it. The best news was when we were finished we shook it off and zipped it up. It was so easy to clean and carry. Then once home I tossed in the washer just to be sure it would be ready for our next outing. I also have the picnic tote and love it too. We definitely get plenty of uses out of this blanket!

Sitting on the ground has never been more fun!
While at a local gift store I saw this and had to buy it. I had seen it online and was pleasantly surprised to find it in stock. My girls play a lot of outdoor sports. My younger one gets restless watching her sister's soccer games so this was a nice alternative to a chair. We both laid on it while watching her game on Mother's Day! I love that it folds up and then zips shut. It is lightweight and fits in my Carried Away Tote, which I keep in my car to hold sunscreen, coats, bug spray,magazines and snacks, as we are always either going to a softball or soccer game!
