How To Recover An Umbrella

Filed under: DIY — Savvy Housekeeper at 7:42 am on Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Umbrellas are easy to find free or cheap, but an attractive umbrella is another story. But now you can make any umbrella attractive through this tutorial on how to recover an umbrella on Whatever Dee-Dee Wants. In it, Jessica from Me Sew Crazy demonstrates how to take your average umbrella apart and recover it with pretty material. You can access the instructions here.

I like the idea of sprucing up an umbrella this way, especially since the prettier an umbrella is, the more expensive it is. Even better, when your old umbrella wears out, there’s no need to throw it out–just recover it with new fabric and you’re good to go. [Recycled Crafts]
