parasal from unbrella

 
 

I have been wanting to make this for some time, I covered an existing unbrella that had a few holes with home -dec fabric ( thank you Carrie!), I pinned the fabric together over the umbrella for the pattern but still had fitting issues - although the cells appear the same they are not symetrical at all. Next time I make one I will use thinner material, the dotted fabric adds a little weight but it keeps the sun out, perfect for the beach!

Paint Brush Holder

 
 

I made this out of osnaburg- one of the oldest fabrics, I love to use it, it has a great feel and look. I didn't line this because I wanted it to be thin. Now off to painting...
