I LOVE this! It's sooo divine!
The colours with the stained glass effect is fabulous and the pointy bits really are awesome ;P
I am so definitely going to try to make one of these, though I think I'm going to have to check the $2 stores for kiddie umbrellas to practise on, before trying a full size one.

You really do make the most divine things and I covet them all XD

P.S. Your dress is awesome and is that a crochet trim I spy on your shoes as well?

This is really amazing!  I have it pinned on Pinterest as well as commenting on here!  Great work!  I know you said that you used upcycled umbrellas, I was wondering how you attach the crochet to the base.  I have an umbrella base that needs to either be thrown out or repurposed into something like this but I just can't figure out how to attach my crochet to it.

Thank You!!!  Grin  Hmmm... Attaching is difficult. If You have holes on the points of the umbrella base You can sew the crochet to them (this is the easy way). This time unfortunately I didn't have holes, only a kind of caved endings with dangerously cutted edges (they have broken my nails and both my hands!) so I had to use beads to create holes to attach the crochet... I'm waiting for the sun to make the close up photos so I can show it better.  Wink
