I started with a yard sale left over lamp, and I say that because someone was actually going to toss the lamp and I needed some extra light in my studio so I rescued it! The shade was paper so it was easily discarded and replaced with my handmade frilly, pretty, girly shade!
I wasn't quite sure how to get the best photo so I took several with the lamp on....
My second lesson was to see if the lamp actually comes apart before you decide to change it, it took a bit o rewireing to put the fabric on the base, but it was so worth it!
From the Moda Bake Shop Blog:
The Challenge? All audition submissions must be some sort of Office/Studio Accessory.
It can be anything that would be used on or at an Office or Studio setting.
Sewing Basket of Mystery Items:
Fabrics used must feature at least one type of Moda precut. Additional Moda fabrics may be used to complete your project.
Project must use at least one type of buckle. This can be any size, shape or color.
Project must also include Quilt Batting somewhere in or on the project.
My project used:
Moda Fat Quarters from the Fandango Line.
I used 2 buckles as decoration on the shade.
I used batting to add a layer of stiffness to the lamp shade.
Now that I'm reading "somewhere" on the project for the Quilt Batting I'm wondering how I can use Batting in a unique way?! I guess you'll have to come back and visit to find out!
