< Go Back

 i found a horrid old lampshade in a charity shop.
horrid fabric that is, but lovely big shape
so promptly bought it
ripped and snipped off the horrid fabric (keeping the fire resistant fabric on)

i chose a couple of my wonkybutton snippysew samples to chop up and use
(the russian dillydollies and some christmas fairy decorations).

 using the horrid fabric panel as a template i chopped up fabric to creat 6 panel peices.

 then sewed it onto the lampshade.

the sewing was a bit frankenstien blue peter at times…. but wno cares!

then i sewed on a nice big trim on the bottom and a nice green and pink ribbon on the top and put it up in our little snug room.

i know i know, if you look closely at the middle picture, there is a little section of trim missing. i guessed, i mean miscalculated how much trim i needed… so need to go back for a little bit more and sew it on to finish it off good and proper.

but i love it! looks nice and homely and old fashioned, but with a wonkybutton twist.

very easy peesy, and very satisfying.
