Fancy lamp

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I made this fancy cover for an rather boring shade I have had for quite sometime. The base came from an auction and has made a great addition to my desk.

I used an off cut of cotton with metal thread through it which gives it the petticoat effect. The ribbon was one from my collection. I hemmed the fabric with the aid of my hot glue gun, then I pinned the fabric in place making a tuck every 5cms or so and then secured it with the ribbon. Once it was secured I removed the pins. And voila!
