"With warm weather this winter in Providence,
And a shiny new snow blower at rest in the shed,
I have decided to let go of white winter visions,
And look forward to spring precipitation instead!
This little frog prince is ready for spring showers under his snappy new felt umbrella.
To make this felt umbrella follow the step-by-step tutorial below. To create your very own Frog Prince (a suitable companion for any season), head over to my Etsy shop where you will find the new pattern for $5.00 today through Sunday February 12th! (Price returns to $8.00 on Monday February 13)"
Umbrella materials and tools:
Light blue wool felt for umbrella top: approximately 8” by 8” piece,
Gold felt for Spokes and handle: approximately 2” by 8” piece
Red felt for decorative dots: approximately 3” by 5” piece
Embroidery thread: Light blue and gold thread to match felt.
A light weight metal hanger (from a drycleaner) OR thin wooden/bamboo skewers
Sturdy wire cutters
Note about Embroidery thread: embroidery thread is made up of 6 strands plied together. Cut thread into 30- to 36-inch lengths (longer threads can easily tangle). Separate each length into two 3-ply strands of thread to stitch this umbrella.
