Fresh Cut lampshade


Fresh Cut lampshade, originally uploaded by SIMPLY.MADE.

So here's what I've been working on the past few days during nap time. I used the instructions from here... and here. I had this fabric leftover from the quilt I made for my mom for Christmas. I really do love Heather Bailey's Freshcut fabric collection. I was thrilled when I had fabric leftover from making the quilt (due to a misprint in the pattern)- and even more thrilled when we found out that we'd have a little girl- because I can totally see adding a few of the other fabrics from the freshcut line to this room so that we don't have to paint it a girly color (yeah- less work!) and so that the rocking chair you see beside the table in the picture will still work in the room. Man alive- that rocking chair is the BEST for rocking a baby back to sleep in the middle of the night- trust me- That chair and I have LOTS of history.
