Description

To spend japanese rainy season comfortably holding umbrella with this case outside..

This pattern is from japanese sewing magazine.

I laminated the outer fabric to protect water.
Laminating was first try,so first time is failed,actually wasted the precious fabric..^^;

I like the idea draining standed water from bottom.

Material Notes

Laminate sheet,cotton fabric,plastic fabric(inside),magnet button,velcro tape

    What a good idea. I’ve always wondered what to do with a wet umbrella in crowded trains; this seems handy.
