DIY broken umbrella tote bag

Broken umbrellas are all over the place. Blame it on the rain? Planned obsolescence is more like it - meaning stuff is made to break. Umbra from Grist visits the Fixers Collective in Brooklyn, a "social experiment in improvisational fixing and mending". You can get your fix here, with step-by-step instructions to make a tote bag out of a broken umbrella. Carrying groceries never looked so good and reuseful.
