I made parasols!


Now I'm wrapping a parasol which is made in pretty marimekko fabric. It's a birthday gift to my sister. The idea has been in my mind for some time, as she is quite sensitive to the sunshine (so am I) and would love a pretty parasol as a gift.

I did a pilot production with making mine, and then made my sister's parasol. I bought the DIY parasol kits which contained the frames and the instructions, and sewed the fabrics of my choice. I really love what I've got after struggling with my first DIY parasol experience.

I hope my sister will like it!
