What do you do with an old umbrella that's no longer functional? Today's showcased tutorial shows how to salvage the fabric and turn it into a raincoat for a backpack.
Lisa, from Cucicucicoo, shows how to make a Backpack Rain Cover from an Old Umbrella. Naturally the rain cover is waterproof, just like the umbrella. Lisa's comprehensive tutorial shows just how easy it is to make this project.
When I think of the number of umbrellas I've thrown out over the years! Not anymore. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to make a rain cover for a handbag. Just have to wait for an umbrella to break now.
Lisa added her backpack rain cover to the Jackets, Coats, Raincoats & Ponchos link party. You might like to check out the following projects at the Jackets, Coats, Raincoats & Ponchos linky...

very cool ideaReplyDelete
This is a very neat idea. My Grandfather was the maker of umbreallas and parasols. During WW@ Jewsin Holland were forbidden to have umbrealas' thus my grandfather had the idea to sew rainhats which Jews could wear. he also gave this work to friends and family members who than could make a little money from making and selling those hats.ReplyDelete
