Lampshade Covers

Well, two done and many more to make ! Here are our lampshade covers. Made in a discontinued Linen material by Laura Ashley. These are made as pair to cover 5 inch high x 5 -7 width shades. This pair are for our stall at the November Vintage and Handmade Fair. After the Fair the plan is to try and link our PayPal account to this blog ands start selling !!!

And switched on......

We are happy with these and plan to make some plain white linen with a ribbon trim next.

The lampshades look very soft and pretty. Lampshade covers always seem to be made of hard stuff don't they?!

So pretty Carol. I'm sure they will fly out of your shop once you have stocked up!

We share a lot of the same hobbies.
I love Laura Ashley.
Those are beautiful lampshades.

I hope that you will also give some instructions of your work on this blog with pics as the projects develop.
