I have had a lamp making project sort of started for over a year, but didn't have a shade idea for it AT ALL until a couple weeks ago when I realized some fabric I'd bought on spec Lips sealed was perfect for it!  Grin



I looked a few tutorials to find what method I thought would work well for me and combined a few. I'd always thought that this would be harder to get a tidy-looking result than it actually turned out to be, so YEY!

The seams:


The interior, which is not flawless, but I was afraid all this time that it would be a real shi!tshow and it's actually pretty decent:


Here is the finished lamp project!

Thank you! I'm really tickled with it. I had fallen for the fabric and then when I saw it on sale from an online source along with another "must-" have I got a couple yards of each. Not sure what will become of the 1 3/4+ yards I have left, though! I'm editing pics of the finished lamp to share and I think there's a decent one of the shade lit up.

Thank you! Isn't it, though? I comes in a couple colorways, too. The other is photo-realistic stacked cordwood, the view of the ends in a small-ish scale. No idea what I'll use it for, but there is something about a nice stack of firewood that pleases my eye!
