Last Saturday I thought I would just whip out a little cover for my patio umbrella. That's what I told myself..."I'll just whip it out in no time at all." I don't know why but when it comes to sewing I always think it's going to take about half the time that it actually does. I guess that's a good thing because if I really knew how much time something like this would take, I would probably never pull out my sewing machine!
To make it, I used a queen size flat sheet that I bought on sale at Marshalls. I cut it in a circle about the same size as the umbrella. (I know it doesn't look like a circle but it is) I then used the fitted sheet which I cut in strips to make the ruffle. It sounds so quick and easy, doesn't it? Well, not for me. Hours were spent on this!
