Summer Parasol Applique Is Sure To Draw Great Interest
Imagine the fabric prints you could use to make this Summer Parasol. It’s so pretty with the little block edging. It looks so real you feel like picking it up. Applique the umbrella to an 8-1/2″ square.
To piece the parasol over the paper pattern, first cut fabric with the seam allowances included. Cut paper templates ignoring the seam allowances, fold the fabric edges over each ,and glue the seam allowances down with a glue stick.
The pins tell you what’s top and bottom of each piece.
Then whip-stitch the ruffle to the umbrella and removed the paper.
After you have pieced the ruffle you can applique it with the handle and top knot.
This Summer Parasol is so quaint with a pointed top knot!
There is a free pattern download from this link for the Parasol, however it seems you need an Acrobat Pdf account in order to download.
