Just wanted to share this clever summer project–sewing together recycled, thrifted umbrella fabrics to create a fun multicolored sun shade. This one was made by the gals who run ReForm School, who hosted the CRAFT: 07 release party in L.A. last Sunday. They simply sewed the edges of each umbrella together, then added grommets around the perimeter. It worked great during the party and lent a really festive look to the patio.
