Fabric and stuffing for bloomers and decor for shoes (optional)
Step 1: Remove the umbrella handle and
slide the pants over the metal rod.
Step 2: Attach pants to wire frame. I used
heavy wire to thread through the fabric,
but you can use anything that will fasten it to the wire frame.
Step 3: Cut the pool noodle in half and stuff each leg.
Step 4 (optional): Attach bloomers to each leg. I created
mine by sewing two leg pieces with lace attached at the bottom. I wrapped
a piece of fabric around the remaining area.
Step 5: Make a tulle skirt. For a step-by-step tutorial of how
I made this skirt, click here. Attach the skirt around the upper
part of the legs.
Step 6: Decorate shoes and slip onto the bottom of legs.
They should fit snugly on noodles.
Step 7: Attach a wire loop to the top of the
umbrella and hang from a tree or from the ceiling.
