I'm not sure why Lite Brite hasn't come out with a cool lampshade with different "patterns" to overlay...I know I would play with it all the time!  I also browsed the internet looking for some type of suitable sustitute for a Lite Brite lampshade but wasn't able to find anything.

So, I decided I simply had to have my very own Lite Bright lampshade so I grabbed an old, stained lampshade and my tools.  I used a hammer and nail to create the holes for the pegs and then used a screwdriver to bore them out a little bit.  Then I just snapped those pegs in and they are holding amazingly well.  I assumed I'd be using some type of glue to keep them from popping out all over the place, but they are sticking in really tight. 

I couldn't decide on any specific designs or words, so I just did some basic swirls.  I ran out of pegs so I've already been browsing the auction site to get some more.  I'll be browsing the thrift stores for refills, too.  This is the first of many because I have so many ideas for designs.  I'm a Lite Brite fool, I tell ya.

Thanks for any comments!


Someone asked about painting on the pegs but since I didn't have any type of stained glass paints on hand, I tried some StazOn stamping inks.  I love the effects!  I just basically rolled the pegs over the stamp pad and tried different color combinations. 

This is blue and purple...

And SeaGreen which is green and yellow and a little bit of blue...

And Fire with red, orange and yellow...

And I had to try a rainbow one with all of the colors...

The inks that I used...

Cool Oh my god!  I had light bright when I was a kid and just loved playing with them. You better believe that I will try and do this. It will be so much fun.

I found the coolest fake fur at wal-mart of all places, and I knew I had to make Rob a bed. The fur is short-ish blue with dots of green that are longer. If you smooth it out it almost looks like stripes. I couldn't figure out how to put the bed together at first, so I had a pile of fake fur on the living room floor for a while and Rob loved it immediately. He would be playing with us and then disappear and we'd find him sleeping in the pile of fur.
Here's the finished bed - I couldn't get Rob to leave it alone, so he's modeling again.

and a top view -

  Smiley This is sssoooo cute. Iv'e seen this same material at my wal-mart and couldn't imagine what to do with it, and this is just perfect.

Yes, the embroidered kitty t-shirts continue... Smiley  I made this for a friend, which inspired me to experiment with some new stitches, and in general, put oodles of time and effort into it.  I like the results!  My only reservation is the color I used for "Shop" - if it wasn't so hard on the fabric I'd re-do it... Sad

I worked from a free vintage pattern you can find here:
I just love kitty kats.  And yours are soooo adorable, if I thought for a minute that I could do that and not make a total mess of it I would in a heart beat. You do exceptional work.
