Stitched Lamp Shade

I tried this last year to add some embellishment to a lamp shade, so I thought I’d quickly show you how I did it.

An easy project if you are brave enough to put a lamp shade in your sewing machine.  You’ll need an inexpensive paper or plastic lined shade.  I’d advise using a heavy-duty needle, long stitches on slow speed, with loose tension. Simply wind the thread that you want to show onto your bobbin and place the shade in your machine with the wrong side facing up, as shown below.  Stitch around — and that’s all!
