New crisp packet thing – umbrella cover.

I make things out of crisp packets.  Yes, crisp packets.  It started as a project for my Eco Club, as crisp packets are very difficult to recycle, so I looked online and learnt a technique to make them into bags, bracelets, bookmarks etc.  Since then I have taken part in the Choose to Reuse fashion events, run workshops, gone to craft fairs and even taught what seemed like most of Yorkshire the technique at the Great Yorkshire Show.

At the last craft fair I went to, someone suggested a new idea to me, making covers for umbrellas.  So I did this one today.

You need to make 11 loops each with 18 pieces, before sewing them together as for the bags.
