Made it: Typewriter Lampshade

Getting in right at the end of the quarter I have finished my lampshade. It took so little time it’s embarrassing that I’ve had the kit and the fabric for *cough* years. I absolutely love it and it was a brilliant way to use a piece of fabric that I loved so much I never wanted to actually use it. Now I see it every day and that’s brilliant.

I notice Sew Scrumptious has these kits for sale. Warning: visiting that shop may cause fabric purchases. It definitely got me, they have the amazing Roald Dahl fabrics in stock.

It is the second time I have used one of these kits and it is definitely a two person job if you want to do it well. I will be making more though as how amazing is it that you can use any fabric or wallpaper you like. So cool.

This was one of my projects in my Finish Along 2014 – Q1 list.

    Oooh I love your lampshade! I have some of that fabric in a different colourway. I’m going to have to make myself a lampshade now. Like you I’ve never wanted to actually use it before as its so gorgeous (and so expensive!). Thanks so much for the lovely mention too. I really appreciate it. I will post your order tomorrow and I am going to add in a little surprise!! Louise x
