Little and large…

Little and large!

Little and large!

Today I made my biggest lampshade so far, for an order through Folksy. It was made using Heather Bailey fabric Hello Roses which I’ve used before to make small lampshades. This was quite a challenge due to the size. I won’t bore you too much but it involved two seams, matching the pattern and trying to center the roses on the lampshade (now I know why we study maths at school!) Now it’s complete and looking lovely I’m pretty pleased, shame it’s a bit too early for a glass of celebratory wine!

It’ll be off in the post later today to Philippa in Sussex…

  1. It’s so tricky getting that double seam right, isn’t it?!!
