1 but 2 patterns...( available soon)
For all those who are accomplished sewers and designers..this pattern will be a breeze...you should have no troubles at all....I have included a dozen photos to assist you... This one was FREE as promised!( after thousands of downloads and far to man inquiries...I have no more FREE time to assist you all.
For those who may require a bit more assistance, tidbits, what not to do, some wee additions that will have you breezing through making your own SHADE or RAIN UMBRELLA, you may want a more detailed pattern....THIS one will have 60+ photos....if ever you purchased any of my patterns, you know I am pretty detailed with every aspect of making anything. I don't hold back, I share with you in coloured photos, the threads, the needles, the sewing, the stitching and even the DONT DO areas-that I had accomplished successfully wink... Every one of you will be able to make your very own umbrella using any size "RECYCLED umbrella of your own" with ease. I will give you tidbits on how to make it with a laminate and a fabric one with a border print.
Years ago I purchased a very expensive umbrella while in France.....I added all those extra steps so your OWN umbrella will be extra special too. I even have one with a ruffled edge that is much easier than you can imagine... ( that is optional of course)
Now as you read this the
after you have drawn your pattern, all you do is sew up all of the panels, and put it back the same way as you took it apart..... Pretty simple you say....all you needed were a few steps..... Take as much time taking it apart...and you will be successful. Do everything in REVERSE!
Many of the regulars here have downloaded it already....
IF YOU have not downloaded the PATTERN by now and would like a COPY
drop me a note ---I will see if I have some FREE time !
( made it easy for you to just print an attachment in an email, I took the time
to download it all smaller so it will fit on regular sized paper)
AND for those who may need a bit more assistance...I am still working on that pattern
it is well over 60 -80 photos and a whole lot more detail and close up photos so
you will get the same results as this...
( cover of complete PATTERN) and it will be available in a PDF
as it will be a very large file....
