For rain....perhaps you could find some cool paper or thin plastic (think transperancy sheets..I think they have some in blue) and cut oversized raindrops out of them and attach them to the ceiling with fishing line...or something equally invisible.
As for the umbrellas....I don't know. My first thought was to hang them from the ceiling as well, but that could get quite crowded.
If you have any ceiling lights, you could attach them upside down as a shade...or if you have floor lamps, you could attach them sideways as a shade. I think I have a diagram of this one that I used to show someone for their parasol...yup, here it is.
Um........yeah. I'll let you know if I think of anything else. Hope this helps a little.
Take a scarf--this is an old one from Goodwill. Tie ends to the hairband and adjust to your headsize, and you have a scarf that will stay in place! and without sewing and you can adjust the width and everything.
woah woah woah woah woah, why didn't anyone tell me about this before?
I'm not perfect. Sure I'm fast, and in general my projects turn out okay, but I'm so impatient that I don't wait to learn things that I NEED to know. Like binding off
Look at my third "project" ever. This is the only thing that I have failed at, and it was because I didnt know how to bind off, so i just tried to stitch it together
Oh no! haha. That could actually be considered kinda cool. It's one of those things I'd expect to find in those random boutiques for ridiculous amounts of money....I look at them and say "Hey I could knit something and cut holes in it myself!"
And here are mine. As I mentioned earlier, I made it for a relative who's having twins (obviously a boy and a girl) I dont really like the pink color. It was the only thing they had available at Michaels in the same weight as the white....It's a little too bright and neon-ish, but they liked them! The thing on top of the pink blanket is a little baby hat, I made a blue one for the boy as well.
Edited to say: The blue one still hadnt been blocked at this point, that's why it looks kinda wonky
is it true that if a person with light colored hair dyes it black it never goes back to its original color?
Um....hair grows out.
My natural hair color is a mousey brown/dirty blonde, I dyed it brunette-ish, a few months ago, and just recently added black streaks....not as crazy as some of you guys, but it's a big step for me
The brown color is actually darker than shown in the pics, the flash reflected, and I had to lighten the pics, because you couldn't see anything originally. These arent' great pictures..but it's all I've got for the moment, it looks cooler with my hair down.
here's a few different ways of doing them..that I have used, tell me if you dont understand these.
For the first one, of course, just pretend that it is one long one, folded in half...I'm just using and old tutorial, which I am too lazy to fix an then upload again. You would sew on the green lines.....leaving it somewhat short on one side, and drapey on the other
How big did you make it, how wide, like from point to point, or I guess you could tell me how many rounds, that would take a while to count though, if you could give me an approximate width, I would love you forever. I'm making one....and soon another, for a set of twins yet to be born, so I dont really have anything to judge it by.
