Covering a lampshade tutorial......

Good Morning All

Well I thought this might be a great tutorial.  I have never done this myself and I am interested in doing so for me personally.  Its a great little tutorial and I have this book on my wish list for Christmas as it comes highly recommended.  The tutorial uses hot glue gun to keep panels in place for stitching which is a great idea to keep them taught.  Nothing worse than a baggy panel!

I would like to cover some lampshades with vintage fabrics including vintage embroidered table clothes but as in the tutorial have different pieces to cover with so it is not too busy!  So for me a piece of vintage embroidered cloth and then a piece of vintage plain linen ......

Have a look and see what you think and maybe you will have some ideas of your own once you get to grips with the basics of covering a frame.  Have a wonderful weekend and as always Happy Stitching!
