Lampshade Tutorial

A short while ago I shared with you all the magic of making Joanna’s very own ‘inside out lampshade’ Part 1, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and are ready complete your creation! We’d all love to see your new lampshades so why not send us a picture in the comments box below and let us know what you think?

If my last post inspired your crafty soul to have a go at making your own  ‘Jenny Wren’ shade… hooray! Your frame will now be beautifully bound and ready for covering with treasured fabric scraps. As promised, this post explains how to do just that. My Jenny Wren combines sugar sweet vintage sheeting with an odd-ball piece of embroidered table linen. Choose whatever makes you happy. As long as your fabrics are of a similar weight, all will be fine. ‘Part Two’ is pretty straightforward, but I would be fibbing if I said  little sewing know-how wouldn’t be useful. Just take it steady and be as accurate as you can.

Remember: to make this lampshade you can either recycle an old lampshade frame or buy one from Needcraft here. Find Part 2 of Joanna’s wonderful lampshade tutorial here on her Blog.
