i like to take apart old cruddy umbrellas that have seen better days and breathe fresh new life into them.  some of these are large enough for your outdoor picnic table and some of them are small enough to attach to your lounge chair at the beach to shade your face.  reworking umbrellas is a relatively easy process and just takes a little time and lots of material.  i peruse my vast collection of vintage fabrics and trim to make these come to life.  i’ve sold these for weddings, garden parties and summer events where  they are definite attention getters!
