Blanket in a Bag


I don't think you're ready for this crochet Blanket in a Bag pattern. The reason is because it's called a 'quillo', or a crochet blanket, bag, and pillow all in one pattern. Can you even believe that? There can't be anything better than having all of these things at once, especially when you are on the go. Once you lay out the crochet blanket to keep you warm, you can slip your necessities in the pocket that's created like a sort of bedside purse. Then when you fold it all up, you can have a comfortable pillow to take with you. Best of all three worlds!

Very practical this blanket in a bag. Very portable, very handy. Easy to used and carry. Very practical travel buddy.

This is a great Idea! A Blanket in a Bag is great and the best way to store them when not in use. I want to make some of these for our van for the grandkids. They can be used as pillows if not blankets.. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. So good to have I have to print this one and save it.. Thank you so much for sharing this great crochet blanket pattern.

This is one of those projects I want to make for everyone I know. It is practical and I know that it would be used instead of one of those gifts stuffed away some where. This would be great to take to the ball games, movies or just to keep in the car for when needed. Great idea. Thanks for the free pattern.

Everyone needs one of these. As a mom with now grown children, this would have been perfect when my sons were young. Easy to carry and an item that would have gotten a lot of use. Now as they are adults, this would be a great gift for them. Both of them travel a lot and this would be a small comfort when on those long trips. Most definitely change the color scheme to be more suitable.

Ok once again it is a copy of an original pattern on an older site (Now archived) Called Stadium Blanket, and once again the original one is more sturdy than this one looks. http// == tp//

Okay this ingenious! I can see several of these forming in my mind. One in my friend's favorite team colors so they can wrap up in it at the game to keep warm and afterward one, two, three and you're ready to go to the car. All neat and tidy! I definitely will want to make one in a color scheme that goes with our car because my hubby likes to keep it cooler than I like in there and a pillow for the long trips. Wow! I can see this pattern really getting the use!!!

This is definitely a pattern everyone who has a car should make. It will make a great pillow for the sleepy child in the backseat or if an emergency occurs and a blanket is needed.

Very clever. A travel pillow, blanket, and tote all in one. A great take a long item to use for an adult, child, or baby. Every car should have one of these stored in it at all times and especially when traveling. Its always nice to have a pillow or a blanket to take naps in the car when traveling. Would work for airplane travel also.

Such a great take along for so many outings. It is nice and compact to save space. You can use it on road trips and family outings. It would also be a handy blanket set for children in daycare settings where they have a nap time. Just keep the handle short to avoid mishaps.

I'm giving this pattern a five-star rating for novelty and ingenuity. Novelty because this my first time to see this 3-in-1 crochet pattern. (I've seen one like this but made of cloth). Ingenuity because I admire the designer's imagination and creativity. I'm excited to do this because I actually travel a lot on an inter-island ship and this is very useful for this purpose. I can also make one for my mom and one for my granddaughter. Thanks for the pattern.

My sister-in-law is pregnant again! And with twins this time. I am going to make two of these, one in green and white, the other in yellow and white, for the new additions to the family. Can't wait! Any idea as on making the blankie part bigger?

Actually, it was called a quillo because we used to make them as QUilts with piLLOws attached. If you crochet it, it's not a quillow anymore. Maybe a ganno?

How great would this finished item be to take along to a picnic outdoors or even to beach this summer? It would be much less bulky than your standard traditional blanket, and it even has its own storage, too! I think these would sell very well if anyone is participating in spring/summer craft fairs. The colour combinations are endless!

I've been looking for a pattern like this, Thank you! After reading the pattern and material list, I think I'm going to double the size of the blanket for a travel blanket/pillow. I think this would be a nice pattern for the kids when they fall a sleep in the car too. This is a well written pattern that looks like it well come together fairly fast. I see a couple of these being made here. Thank you for this free Blanket in a Bag pattern.

This is a great baby or small child gift. Perfect size for traveling. I put a shoulder strap (attached at sides of pocket) on it instead of hand handle, and a button. Very cute and very easy.
