Designing the lamp

Cut pressure-sensitive styrene into panels slightly larger than the sides of the lampshade frame using a rotary cutter and cutting mat. Iron the fabric. Peel the backing off the styrene and press onto the wrong side of the fabric. Trim around the edges, leaving a little excess fabric beyond the edge of the styrene.


Draw a thin line of glue down the edge of the lampshade. Lay down the soutache to hide the seams between panels. Pull it taught. Repeat for the other three edges. Trim at the corners when dry.


Spread glue onto the first 4 inches of grosgrain ribbon with a paintbrush. Starting 1 inch from the bottom corner, place the glued grosgrain along the bottom edge of the frame on the fabric side of the shade extending halfway over the frame edge so it can wrap around the frame to the inside.

Paint glue onto another 6 inches of the ribbon and pull gently while placing it down onto the fabric of the shade. Wrap the ribbon around the frame toward the inside, mitering the corner.

Continue around the bottom of the shade and trim to overlap the starting point of the ribbon. Repeat on the top of the shade, making sure to snip around the shade clip. —teenyblessings
