Even during a pandemic, there are entrepreneurs who see an opportunity.  Social distancing is the new norm, at least until 2022 as some researchers claim. This has led to the creation of the Sun blanket; a circular picnic blanket with four equally spaced pads at the circle’s edge that keep you 6 feet apart.  The design is the brainchild of London designer Paul Cocksedge, who says even as someone who works with measurements daily, it can be hard to pinpoint 2 meters (6 feet) apart.  The blanket is a thin circle that is hollow in the center. Simply unroll it around an umbrella or tree and then attach the four individual pads so that four people can enjoy a picnic while remaining socially distant.  The best part is the design pattern is free (DOWNLOAD here)!  Just download it and let your sewing skills do the rest!
