How to Make a Stitched Shade

It’s the little touches that make a room special. This simple project covers a lampshade with pretty fabric and easy machine embroidery. It doesn’t require much money, time, or effort.

Jennifer Hasemann shows you how to give a plain lamp a lovely new look with embroidered motifs in this project from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 4. Simply measure a new or used lampshade to create a pattern. After you cut and interface your fabric, you select and sew the embroidery motifs. Finishing is a breeze. Just edge the embroidered fabric with a satin stitch, and glue the new cover over the original.

This is a great project for leftover fabric. You can make lampshades to match pillow or curtain projects. And since you did it yourself, you can add a soft glow of pride to your lighting scheme.
