More Shade

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.


  1. Kris, you can not understand the satisfaction of reading your tutorial in Italian !!!!!!!!!!
    great tutorial, although I still have a hard .. I can not quantify the measures .. Here in Italy we use the cm ...
    : ((
    it would be possible to translate the measures in centimeters?
    thanks, Caterina

    1. If you Google inch/centimeter conversion you can find an easy conversion tool. I keep it on my desktop so I can pull it up if I'm doing a tutorial in centimeters or want to measure something in metrics. It works great!

  2. This is such a cool tutorial. I have no problems with the shades working for my table lamps I copied and pasted what you have in I think Part 1 and it worked out really good (I made a mock shade out of copy paper). I'm going to try and make it out of a soft plexi and then cover with cloth I think it will really look like a table lamp. Let you know
