If you do the lamp shade, plan on making a few. You don't have to cover them with fabric, just make the shades and put them away for another project. That way you don't have to start from scratch. I works well if you are on an assembly line type of production for the shades. By the time you get done with one step on the last shade you can start the next step with the first shade. Kris
P.S. I have been told by a follower to suggest using LEDs for your lights and this shade would be all right to use. Thank You, Judy.
