I live in Florida and we have our fair share of rain. The raining season here is from June till November. It can rain during the day or night.

Materials you will need:

|Use my umbrella to measure|
|Fold the top edge and sew. This pic is bad, sorry.|
|Face wrong side and pin the sides and sew the side. Sorry again about the pic.|
|Before sewing the side sew the bottom at an angle and cut off fabric at an angle. Turn right side out and you are done.|
|Bag #2 You can use this bag or use your umbrella as your guide to measure.|
|Pin the side and trace the other side and pin along the other side.|
|Fold the top opening and sew. Next sew the bottom corners at an angle and cut extra fabric then sew the sides.|
