Choose fabric in whatever color scheme you like best. One and a half inch strips are used for the piecing. You may already have leftover strips you can cut down to size or select a Honey Bun of pre-cut 1 1/2″ strips for already-coordinated fabrics.
The strips are pieced to a paper foundation, based on the pattern you create from your lamp shade. Use a small stitch length so the paper can be easily removed.
Once the piecing is glued to the lamp shade, add a bit of hand stitching to finish it off. This easy project will only take a few hours to complete.
The pieced cover, designed by Rachel Griffith from P.S. I Quilt, can be adapted to any smooth (not pleated) lamp shade.
