The picture to the right is the old cover. A new umbrella cover was made and completed in November 2011. The love the mum fabric. The only thing I need the do this weekend is to spray on waterproofing and let it dry. Below is the new cover.
I taped all the raw edges and seams with a dark brown fabric. The inside is as beautiful as the outside at least to me. I made a matching tie for the umbrella when it is closed.
Lastly Alaine (my upholstery teacher) and I designed a umbrella cover too.
