Lampshade Making

22 Sep

As a subscription gift from Homemaker Magazine I received a lampshade making kit.

So during the summer when I was having a crafty moment I decided to make a lamp shade using the kit for the kitchen until we can get round to putting up an intended new fitting.

The kit came with pretty floral & dark duck egg material; which can be seen in the picture below, but unfortunately the material was to small for the kit.

Luckily I had some John Lewis ‘Holiday Stripe’ fabric big enough and of suitable colouring at hand so I used this instead.

I followed the instructions from the kit…

…Which was easy enough.

Then the finishing touches; nicely tucking in the excess material to get that professional finish…

And Heypresto our new kitchen lampshade.

I’ve seen these lampshade kits and classes about for a while now and never had the inkling to make my own, but after doing this one I would be inclined to have a go at another perhaps next time with some artist flair.
