the embroidered…lampshade?

I’ve already bamboo’d a lamp and doodled on a couple more so the next oh-so-logical step in my beacon beautifying quest just had to be stitched…

Simple yet perky…amiright? Here’s how to make your own in minutes:

Grab an old lampshade, a pencil & embroidery thread + a needle (I highly recommend using a lampshade that is not fabric wrapped plastic – a giant pain in the arsch (& fingers) to poke the needle through!)

Lightly sketch your design on the lampshade with the pencil…

stitch away…

et voila…erm…a rustically embroidered lampshade…that looks like it was stitched by a caveman

all the tutes!
