I really LOVE this idea. Did you ever see those people who are walking on the street with a cute umbrella that matches their outfit or coat?
I'm so jealous. I think, "Who has the resources to buy matching umbrellas for their clothing?"
The latest 'Threads' magazine offers a tutorial on how to recover an old umbrella.
If the cover of your favorite umbrella is ripped or torn, don’t just toss it in the trash. Simply remove the old cover, assemble a new canopy, and attach it.
The process is simple to master and enables you to recover any umbrella frame you find, including tattered antique or vintage finds from your local thrift store. You could even make umbrellas to match your outfits.
Before you know it, you’ll have so many gorgeous umbrellas that you’ll be looking forward to rainy days.
