    Lavender Parasols

    The local hospital auxiliary of which I am a member is holding a Mothers' Day stall in a couple of weeks time and I am making a few items for it which include some lavender parasols.

    I used to make these about 30 years ago for various fetes and they were very good sellers. They are a good small print scrap buster project.

    Cute! Sometimes bringing back an old idea will capture both those who remember and those who have never see this little drawer and closet freshener. I hope you sell many.

    Does your fabric start with a circle,if so what size. If you don't mind I would like to make a few to pass out. Thank you in advance. These are so delicate and pretty.

    Those are wonderful little parasols. I just acquired a quart size bag of dried lavender from my friends I am visiting in California from their lavender farm. Sachets are a great idea.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Here you go; I found a youtube for the directions. Hope this helps. She makes hers from lace and only like a parasol but you could use the cotton fabric; make the parasol like she did; I might not sew the tip quite so tight so the pipe cleaner would go through it and sew the lace on the top; I have Tons of prepackaged lace I got from WM umpteen years ago when I was making my own square dance clothes; I have a huge bin Full! Then just fill with the lavender; tie a narrow ribbon around the top under the lace and cut the pipe cleaner to size and curve over - like a parasol. I think I want to make some - and get rid of some of that lace. I doubt I'd make a dent in what I have. Some if flat lace; some is gathered. What Was I thinking when I got all that. Anyway, hope this helps some.

    Thank you sewnclog for posting that link. It is reasonably close on how I made them. I have had the pattern for over 30 years but no longer the directions. I have a good memory on how they are made as I did many dozens.


    I hope the link helps those inquiring about them. Enjoy.
