- Get your white lamp shade
- Cut the fabric
- Use iron-on hemming tape at the edges
- Take a complementary color of bias tape and use the hemming tape again on the top and bottom edges
- Don't worry about melting the lamp shade... I thought I ruined it a few times, but it just cools down again and molds back the way it was.
Since this was my first shade I made a few mistakes... I forgot to put the original lamp shade seam in the back with the fabric seam. I also should have thought about how dark the fabric was - blocking the light much. I guess it gives the room more ambiance. You'll see where the rest of this fabric is from in a minute...
