You might remember I wrote about Darren's scout blanket a few months ago, an awesome op shop find of a huge wool blanket covered in vintage scout patches.
At the time, I'd never seen a 'camp fire blanket' before but now I keep seeing them everywhere.
These ace examples can be found here, here, here and here.
Recently, the idea seems to have crossed over from being a slightly daggy scouting thing to a design trend.
Cath Kidston has released a campfire picnic blanket, which I am very tempted to buy. Or should I start collecting patches and make my own with one of the many vintage blankets I have in my stash? I have been searching eBay for ages to find a pre-loved vintage scout blanket like Darren's but to no avail.
I also saw the best scout badge cushions in Cottage Industry
in Fitzroy - a nice way to bring a bit of scout love into your living room!
