August 1, 2009Vintage Crafty Saturdays – Unlined Silk Lampshade
Hello, everyone! Welcome to Vintage Crafty Saturdays, where I post a fun vintage pattern, craft or idea from my huge collection that I keep in my studio. Since I have more ideas and patterns than I could ever use, I thought I would share them with you!
I know, I know. The Ruth Wyeth Spears Sewing book. Again. Sorry to post out of the same book for three Saturdays in a row, but I just love the ideas in this little book. And the illustrations, which are also fantastic.
Hopefully, Tom and I are on the beach soaking up some sun right now! In the meantime, here is a really cute idea to make an unlined silk lampshade. Looks like a lot of pins, but if you have some extra vintage fabric that you are looking to use up, this might just be the idea for you!
*Note to everyone: This just may be me being overly paranoid, but not sure of the fire safety rating on this one. I am sure it is fine, but if you have any doubts, please do some research before assembling your lampshade to determine whether or not this may be a fire hazard.
Anyway, enough of that. On to the instructions. Once again, please click the instructions to enlarge them!
