Let’s get started!
- An umbrella, preferably a solid vibrant colour.
- An A4 size sheet of felt paper
- Fabric glue
- White thread or white fabric paint
Draw different sizes of raindrops on the felt sheet using a pencil, free hand.
Alternatively, you can cut out three different sizes of raindrops on a sheet of cardboard to make stencils. Keep the stencil on the felt sheet and draw around it.
Draw enough raindrops to fill your umbrella. We used around 4-5 of different sizes on each panel.
Use a pair of scissors to cut out the droplets on the felt sheet.
Single stitch the edges of the raindrops with white thread to give it an outline as shown in the image. You can also use fabric paint to draw an outline on the raindrops if stitching is not your thing.
Apply a generous amount of fabric glue at the back of the raindrops (since felt absorbs glue) and stick them on the umbrella.
You can decide the placement of the droplets on the umbrella beforehand and then apply the glue.
Leave the umbrella open for 24 hours for the raindrops to dry completely. We used mauve droplets on a pink umbrella for contrast.
Other colour combinations that you can do are purple and yellow, red and blue, orange and green or pretty much any combination you fancy!
