Think that old, torn umbrella is destined for the trash can? Think again and give it new life! You can upcycle the fabric into a sturdy, handy tote. Umbrellas come in so many cool patterns now, don’t let those polka dots or animal prints go to waste. Just check out the darling owl design in on the Right as Rain Upcycled Umbrella Tote—what a sweet accessory for a child (or an adult!).
It might seem daunting to reuse fabric from an old umbrella, but never fear! Jo Bodley’s top-notch tutorial will show you how to remove fabric from the umbrella frame and turn it into an upcycled stunner.
Since umbrella fabric is sewn together in triangular pieces, Jo designed the Right as Rain Upcycled Umbrella Tote to use the triangles in inventive, attractive ways. She’ll show you all the tips and tricks for piecing the tote together. She also gives you tips for using an 8-triangle umbrella or a 6-triangle umbrella. Plus, there are directions for adding a Velcro strap to your tote so you can securely fold it for easy storage!
The Right as Rain Upcycled Umbrella Tote pattern includes:
- List of necessary tools & materials
- Complete step-by-step instructions
- Special instructions for using umbrella fabric
- Pattern notes
- Detailed illustrations and photography
This pattern is easy, versatile, and fun—make your tote out of a neutral umbrella fabric (don’t overlook those black or gray umbrellas at the thrift shop!) or with something bright and cheery. Whatever style you choose, one thing’s for certain: you’ll never look at an umbrella the same way again!
