So when I was commissioned to make this lampshade, I was so excited, for two reasons. One because it was made of ribbon and two it was for one of those spangly new craft mags that perch so boastfully on coffee tables of the hoi poloii. Making Magazine is a GORGEOUS monthly that I dribble and drool over with immense pleasure.
The long and short of this drama is........well, I'm not going to lie to you, it was a pig to construct. I carried the work out under duress but was so impressed when I had blobbed on the last bit of hot glue. I'm pleased to say that it was well worth the slippy ribbon and the weaving and wefting and whatever fiddly fanuckets you care to term such a project.
And here she is. An Indian summer inspired ribbony lamp.
Now to think of other ribbony makeovers I can conjure up..........hmmmmmmmmm........
