Covering Toile Lamp Shade

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I used two layers of trim to finish the lamp. One layer of fringe, and one layer ball trim. Tip: I took the toile covered lamp shade with me to Hancock Fabric, and auditioned several trims. This way I was able to try on different looks, and measure properly the yardage needed to trim the entire lamp. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are two different ways to cover a lamp shade and it depends on the shape of the frame. I'll post a couple more lamp shade covering projects so you can see how it's done. It takes patience to make lamp shade covers, but the results are great. You can do this, it easy.

What you will need
