Fliso’s new breezy look

Barbro from Uppsala Sweden gives the Flisö parasol a breezy new fabric. Great for the summer, when you’ll want something more cheery than the Fliso’s original black or red.

“I just took the old fabric away and made a new one in the same size.  5 meters of the new fabric. There are some plastic holders in the corners. I reused them. About an hour’s work.”

    It’s beautiful… If only Sweden had a nice sandy beach to stick in, we’d be set.

  2. The hack is very nice, BUT it must be noted that the original IKEA fabric blocks at least 95% of UV rays. This info may be of some importance.

    Do we know what fabric she used? It looks very nice.

    And “Hälsningar” just means “Greetings”, its not part of her name =)
