after months of waiting the dollar store finally had the little kid umbrellas back so i bought one and made this pretty little thing



and an action shot


and another action shot so you can see the inside

(thats my bf being silly)

you dont really get the colour from the pictures, it is acctually a kind of cream colour, very vintage feeling.
it was really easy to make, i just took the original fabric off, made pattern peices from it and sewed it together with lace on the edges.  the toughest part was sewing the little end do-hickies that attach to the ribs, it was kinda tedious. but totally worth it, coz i now have a cute parasol.

I'd love to do a personal swap for clear safety eyes (15mm or 18mm)

That's really great and I appreciate that you didn't just add lace to the bottom of an umbrella!  Cheesy
