My 2 daughters have grown out of their cutesy animal umbrellas, but not wanting to throw them out, I decided to convert them into useful bags!  Umbrellas provide the perfect fabric for new swimming bags - waterproof of course!!





I also posted more pictures (another umbrella too) and a tute here if anyone is interested!
