Crochet Umbrella - Enchanted Stained Glass Granny Square Umbrella

    Newer Older

    Now on facebook too!!! XD

    So here we go with the next generation of the granny square parasol. This time I put together some squares, triangles and granny pentagons around a granny octagon which is the center of the umbrella. I choosed 13 colours plus black for bordering and joined them like a swirl in rainbow order. When I finished with the tiny granny squares I tried the project on the base and found it... BORING! It was too... "heavy" to see! So I decided to break the line of it and finished with triangles for a "dangerous", pointy look! @;)
    I designed it during the long way to home from Poland, after a crazy weekend ( more about the trevelling and the exhibition here: www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/5880612751/in/photostream ), inspired by the oldest daughter of Vagina Cafe's owner called Anna. She loved the first Granny Square Parasol ( www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/5794836620/in/photostream ) and took a lots of pictures about it! She shown me the photos on the camera and promised me to send them for publishing for You... but it seems that we have to wait a little bit longer because the camera has broken and takes time to repair it (if it's even possible)! >;( Until that moment let's try to enjoy this new one with another wonderful model! XD It won't be that hard, I think! LOL
    She is Barbi, my oldest cousin who helped me already with other photo sets (like the spiderweb tree). It's a pleasure to work with Her, She has an excellent body control, always smiling and looks pretty good in anything I give Her to wear! @;)
    The dress is made of 100% cotton crochet yarns. I wanted to create a colorful assymetric dress which can be worn not only in summer time (in fact over jeans and a t-shirt it gives the best!)... Different shaped and sized flower motifs are able to let us forget those grey autumn days when the only thing we want is hiding under a cosy blanket in front of the tv! XD
    The shoes are mine, embellished with rainbow buttons ( bought from www.etsy.com/shop/schOOLLOcker )... Sometimes I need to make something for myself too, OK?! LOL
