Flowers from an Old Umbrella

I was at SCRAP again, looking for school supplies for my girls, but of course I had to check out their selection of fabric. I was shocked to find an umbrella top rolled up in the pile and thought I must take it and see what I can do. Well I seem to have this flower fetish because I’m constantly making flowers, and yes I used two sections of the umbrella for flowers.

I cut on the seams and that made the flowers stiff and made their shape a bit different than other fabric.

A word of advice that you may already know but just in case – don’t iron them, they will melt.

Here is my finished hair clip accented with feathers.

So if you have an old umbrella laying around that’s broken and cannot be fixed, don’t toss it, take the top off and think of ways you can re-use it.
