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)
using the horrid fabric panel as a template i chopped up fabric to creat 6 panel peices.
then sewed it onto the lampshade.
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.
