Do you remember when I went through a lampshade kick this summer?  The original how to post can be found here... http://jennicanknit.blogspot.com/2012/07/more-lampshades.html
They are surprisingly easy to make!

I just finished this big drum shade for my daughter, Olivia's room.  I haven't been able to take a picture of it hung up yet because her room is always a mess.  Sad but true.

Use the method I described in my earlier post... all you need is some spray adhesive, clothespins and chalk.

This fabric came from IKEA.  I think it is possibly my favorite fabric ever.  I got the cute little see through lamps on clearance at Target for $5.  Rectangular shades are definitely the easiest to cover.  (No pesky curves).
