Happy New Year!

I got my creative juices flowing over the Christmas hols by doing a bit of knitting, which is now waiting to go in the washing machine to be felted before becoming a couple of owls...hopefully!  I then started on a project  I've wanted to do for a while ...


... creating a collage style lampshade!  I really want to make one for the lounge but decided to 'practice' on my bedside lamp first!


I started by taking the shade apart and using the inner plastic bit as a template I cut out some newspaper then  added layers of paper using a white pva glue.  I added stitching, a zip and lace and generally had a ball!  The tricky bit was fixing it all together but despite the odd wobble I'm very pleased with it.


May this year be full of many good things!

The lampshades look great, (but I hope they don't get too warm from the bulb..) Have a very Happy, Creative, New Year!

What a great idea, Sarah. And such a fun way to put one's personal 'stamp' on a room. All the very best for the new year!
