The fabric has been made neat around the umbrella end now. The umbrella has an automatic button and this still works well. It also closes very well, which I didn't expect. It's attached to the points of the umbrella by pins, because it is lightweight and thin I can see through it and pins are more than enough to keep it together. There are two slits for my arms just in case in the sides. Only the eyes left to add to the fabric, then the kitty faces!
