Handmade Lampshades : Beautiful Designs to Illuminate Your Home Paperback
This book is bursting with inspirational images, tips and ideas.
Sixteen contemporary projects are covered in useful step-by-step tutorials.
There is a detailed chapter dedicated solely to the different techniques you will need to know in order to make a fabric lampshade for yourself - techniques such as creating a soft-sided lampshade using just hand stitching, or hand stitching and glue, machine stitching, using laminated PVC to create a drum lampshade, pleating, and creating balloon linings.
At the end of the book there is a hugely useful resources section and a visual feast for the eyes: several pages of nothing but beautiful lampshades.
Read on, learn how, and let your imagination run wild.
