So here it is for your viewing and crafting pleasure.
I love to collect scarves and I have this beautiful scarf that had a radial (circle) design and it looks very antiquey so I thought, that will be perfect!! The shade only cost me 2.25$ to make because I had everything except for the interfacing. OK lets get to it.
|First I took a piece of newspaper and folded it into a quarter then made a circle line from one corner to the next. The newspaper is just the right size for my scarf. I tried forming it into a cone and testing it on my lamp to see how it would look.|
|And here is is all smooth and stuck together.|
|I placed my newspaper circle on top and when I was testing it out I figured that if you take away a quarter of the circle then join those together it makes a cone.|
|I left a little extra instead of taking out a whole quarter, looking back now, take the whole quarter out.|
|I used my little maraca to measure a circle in the center. It is about 3 inches across.|
|Cut that out.|
|I'm going to edge the top of my lamp with red satin 1 inch ribbon so you have to fold it in half and iron it so it stays that shape. |
|Then I cut snips in my shade that went up to that line. So I can flare those out to fit on my ring.|
|So then I moved in by my sewing machine and I opened up the ribbon and fitted the shade inside. I made sure to start my ribbon in the back where my overlap is, see you can see in the corner of the picture where the epoxy seeped through. Lovely huh?|
