Sprucing up the Lampshades *****

I found this idea in a book that I have had for quite a while, so I thought I would have a go and add a fresh look to a couple of uninteresting  lampshades, It's like making a small skirt that you pop over the old shade, I am very pleased with how they have turned out, much prettier!


  1. These lampshades remind me of Doris Day films (yes that's who inspired the name of my blog!!). They are really pretty - how do you get them to stand out at the bottom?

    1. Hi Lily, yes they are very Doris Day!! They stand out by folding and stitching a firm hem, and the original coolie lampshade is underneath so it has a base to lay on.
