lamp shade re-do

i picked up a scruffy lamp shade at the GW...
really scruffy!

i cut away her old clothes,
cut a new pattern...
and sewed a new one out of bleached and washed drop cloth.
ta-da!
her night-time look...
and day time look.
 love!
i wanted to be able to throw her dress in the laundry,
so i sewed ties on her,
finished the edges with old lace i had on hand,
and hung the dodads on to keep her skirt in place.
she's a keeper...
for now!
i love Rie's lamp at Home & Harmony -
i really liked the eyelet finish on hers...
h-m-m-m...i do have another shade.
(linking up to Funky Junk ABC party)

...blessedness!

I had a quick flash back from my youth. Those are pretty close to the lamp shades I grew up with. You did a wonderful job!
