This time I choosed a beautiful organic doily with delicate leaves to modify, I embroidered the star pattern with purple thread and created the colors as blended as possible for showing better the gorgeous motif.

Great for a rainbow wedding, for festivals, as a photo prop... Or just because it's fun!  Grin

Made of sewing thread and it's pretty lace weight.

Diameter: 100 cm

Crochet umbrellas (called "parasols") are NOT meant to be used in rain!!! They are sunshades.  Wink

This is amazingly beautiful!  The delicacy of the lace really softens the rainbow, without taking away from it.

I was looking back through some older posts for inspiration for a road trip project and found this one.  I won't be making one of these any time soon, but I had to stop and say that I think this is beautiful!  Splendid job!
