Episode 5: Lighten Up! How to Cover Lamp Shades

April 13th, 2010

Welcome to Episode 5! If you have a boring ol’ lampshade that could use a little of the “WOW” factor,  be sure to check out this episode sponsored by www.YouCanMakeThis.com . We’ll show you how to cover a lampshade with your favorite fabric! Plus, you’ll learn how to make a no-sew fabric-knot flower in our 2 minute craft countdown! Simply click on the video found at the top of this post!

This episode was made possible by our sponsor, www.YouCanMakeThis.com. If you love to craft, sew, quilt, scrapbook, crochet, paint, knit, well…just about ANYTHING “DIY”, then you’ll love the downloadable patterns and how-to’s at “YCMT”.  They are all created by women who have an expertise in an area. And with the step-by-step photos to help, you’ll feel like you have a friend sitting right next to you, showing you what to do next!

We have our first guest on the show, Kayleen, mother of three and owner of her own etsy shop, LuluBellsBoutique!  In addition to the video, Kayleen shares these tips when making your own lamp shade!

- The easiest type of shade to cover is a true ”drum” shape. You can often find these at places such as IKEA or even Walmart.

- Think about how the color of your fabric will make the room look once the light is turned on. Sticking with a neutral tone will, more often than not, give off a nice light. Kayleen once used a grass green fabric that she thought would be beautiful, but said the room ended up looking like a swamp when the light was on! ;)

-Purchase your fabric after you have made your pattern. Find out how to make the pattern by watching the video above.

==============================

    Oh I love YCMT! I’ve bought several patterns off the site. I think the next one I’m wanting will be the new one by Jennifer Paganelli and Carla Crim, *Cathy*, for girls. The cute little peasant top/dress with the ruffle neckline. I love that you can just download and sew. No waiting!

    Hugs,
    Gina

    The video was great! You ladies always look like you’re having so much fun with anythiny thing you do, unlike myself who wants to throw her machine across the room 1/2 way thru a project! But I think I can do this one, but I need to buy new lampshades first :) Thanks so much!

    Wow is all I can say on the lampshade. It just so happen I brought one at the resale store with the idea to follow along..

    Who knew it was so easy to “reinvent” your decor. And cheap! The lampshades are next on my very long, and growing list of things to do! Thanks so much for sharing such great and fun ideas!

    It’s so hard to choose just one, let alone a few patterns at the YCMT site. I LOVE the Women’s Reversible Wrap Skirt. Especially because I am tall and can make sure it is long enough for me. I also love the Miss Alice Dress from The Handmade Dress, for my little girl. How fun to make it in a coordinating fabric to match the skirt! Oh, my husband isn’t going to be happy I’ve discovered this wonderful “place”!

    I enjoyed the demo on covering a lampshade. It looks rather simple to do, and I might suggest if doing the project single-handed, binder clips or clothes pins might help hold things in place while smoothing, turning, etc. I wonder how difficult it would be to recover a lamp shade that has the tiny vertical ‘accordion’ pleats? Would think that the covering fabric would have to be rather thin and translucent for the maximum light to pass through.

    How clever to make a flower from a long scrap of fabric and knots tied along the length. Who’d have known that knots could turn into a cute fabric floral embellishment. I have a baby gift to make & take for the first grandchild of a friend, so I see an appropriate nursery fabric will turn a plain night stand lamp/shade into a custom one; might include a small flower on the outside. Thanks for the show!

    I went to the YCMT site and I like this pattern http://www.youcanmakethis.com/info/quilting/Case-Study-Basic-Boxes-3-sizes.htm

    I think it will come in handy for keeping stash under control! So much prettier than plastic boxes, too.

    I think it would be easier to tell you what patterns at YCMT that I DON”T love rather than what I do love…I think I have all of Carla’s patterns (with the exception of a couple of the new ones.) I LOVE the simple ease of shopping in my home and being able to download the pattern. I LOVE the ability to have a pattern that I can make for each grand daughter, niece, and daughter and to be able to remake it when they grow up.

    I went to the YCMT website and found a quilt pattern I would like to make called Argyle Blues. The site says that this is an easy pattern which is what I am looking for to make a quick quilt to be auctioned off at a benefit this summer for a nonprofit organization. I think this pattern is great for either a man or women. This would be the second argyle style quilt for me. I made a quilt with an argyle design for my teenage son because he said he wanted a quilt that reminded him of his dad’s socks!

    I have a “broken” lampshade in my family room – it has a rip in the back from falling over when I was cleaning. Your show inspired me to do it myself and recover it. How fun is that? I’m going to shop for the perfact fabric!!!

    So, I LOVE the youcanmakeit website!! I actually made one of their purses for my mom for christmas and she loved it. It was SO easy, too! It is so hard to choose just one thing i’d like to make. Good thing I don’t have little ones anymore, or I would really be going nuts on their site. I am SO going to make that clock for tweens out of old cd’s for my daughters room. What a COOL idea! But to pick one for this blog, was so hard. I want so many of their purses, but for here I choose the ‘Posh Messenger’. Of course you could add just about every tote to my list, too! LOVE this website! My best friend has five little granddaughters, and I am constantly sending her outfits from this website to look at, she loves to sew outfits for her girls. OK, i’m done…..

    Love the lampshade video tutorial. There are so many things to choose from at YCMT that I can’t choose between the Cabrio Tote for my two daughters or the Crocheted Rose Apron for my two grandaughters. I am enjoying watching your video tutorials and the less than two minute projects are such a clever a way to end the show. Thanks for sharing all your craft ideas. With the economy the way it is we need these DIY ideas to make our homes look like the accessories came from an upscale shop. You ladies are such an inspiration to all us crafters. Thanks.

    I’ve loved “You can Make This” for about a year. I love all the patterns so it would be difficult to decide on just one. I usually sew for my grandchildren and charity, clothes, superhero capes, stuffed animals and dolls and baby things. And I want to thank YCMT for their FREE patterns. Because of a financially difficult year it was great to have a place to get free patterns. But I think if I could win, I’d pick the reversible wrap skirt for me.

    I have enjoyed your videos so much because there’s so little emphasis on crafting anymore. And its amazing what pleasure and relaxation can gotten from finding the thing you enjoy doing most. I would pick any pattern from Needle in a Haystick because I trying to help encourage my daughter to start finding crafts that she enjoys, and she has started doing some handwork and loves it. I would love to do whatever I can to help encourage her!
    Keep up the great work!!! Chris

    I admit it… I am completely OBSESSED with YCMT!!! I just cannot get enough patterns.. I know that the patterns I buy from YCMT have been carefully put together so its not only easy to make but easy to understand instructions. I have bought many patterns in the past – the next pattern I am wanting to try is the peek a boo twirl skirt by growing up with rosie. Oh my gosh its just too cute!! With an 11 y/o daughter its tough to make her outfits that are of her age but this skirt she will just love it!

    Fantastic! Recently I thought about putting a lamp in my daughter’s room, but there are few shades around that would match her brightly colored walls with lady bugs and flowers painted on it. However if I made my own shade her room would look wonderful; maybe add some marabou to the bottom.

    I recently put two things in my shopping cart, but never checked out. =( Don’t ask why. I think I had a preschooler crisis which for her could be anything. I have fabric that is crying out to be a Miss Molly Sundress. And we are going to Disney World next month so I’m want to make some Travel Duffles to take along. We really need some nice duffles to take to Nana’s, camping, and all other little trips where a big suitcase isn’t in order. So I can’t pick one. The two I most want right now are the Miss Molly Sundress and Travel Duffle with the Zippered Boxy Bag as my third choice for the said Disney trip. I would really like to put my daughter’s toiletries in her own bag. =)

    Great lesson on lamp shades! They do add just the right accent to a room when you make them yourself! I don’t know if anyone commented on this yet, but one caveat: Mentioned above was being careful what color fabric you use (ala the ‘swamp’ color). But equally as important is the original color of the lampshade. The blue shade used in the demonstration, once the light is turned on, could easily lend enough blue coming through the red fabric to make a slightly purple blend and thus throw off that ‘perfect fabric for this room!’ look. Just a thought.

    Another that I found out years ago…so many of us use a glue gun for projects, especially if we don’t have the glue on hand that is suggested. Don’t use a glue gun for this project as the warmth of the light bulb can soften the adhesion.

    This was a great episode!!! I can’t wait to get home and try to cover that little lamp shade in my kitchen!!! I love all the baby patterns. I’m a wisher (not even really a beginner yet) but it has always been a dream of mine to make bright, sweet, and colorful baby things. Bibs, blankets, burp cloths and accessories I would love to do nothing but create me some of those!!! Thanks for the great ideas. You girls are great.

    I have loved the YCMT site since it began! I have ordered several patterns and found them to be great and easy to complete. I sew a lot for my precious granddaughter and she loves dresses, especially the “twirly ones” she says. I would love to make the “Tiered Flouncy Sundress” featured today. It is adorable and Camryn would love it!

    Princess Corset Top and Dress is my favorite:o) Someday I’ll be able to get this pattern and make it for my little princess.
    I also love jelly rolls! Quilting is a new hobby of mine and they come in real handy. I loved this episode. I guess it’s time for me to stop looking at those drab lights and get to decorating. Thanks for all the great ideas;o)

    Love the video again this week. I registered at YCMT when it first opened and just LOVE that site. SO many great ideas and awesome patterns. I have a wish list over there created already and have a few things there I’d love to get the patterns for. I think probably the one I’m most interested in is the Dee Dee Pleated Dress so that I can make one, or try to anyway, for my granddaughter.

    Love this site & I LOVE YCMT. I have purchased a few patterns already. In fact, I just made a candy bouquet from a pattern I purchased this weekend. So easy, & the recipient loved it as their birthday gift! I would love to get one of the mom/daughter shirt combo packs. Anything at YCMT is fun & easy to understand. I don’t think I would ever attempt a store bought pattern of any kind after using YCMT.

    YCMT is an AWESOME site!! I headed straight over there to see what pattern I would like to make and I saw it as soon as the main page opened–that FABULOUS Tiered Flouncy Sundress with the GORGEOUS fabric from Patty Young’s Flora & Fauna collection. I have that fabric and I LOVE the dress! My 5 year old daughter is saying “yes mommy, yes please please please!”

    I love looking at the AMAZING fabrics in the shop!! Here in South Africa we get very little of the amazing selection that you guys have … also I would need to work double shifts to cover the $20 per yard that we pay here!! Though to be honest I am replacing my keyboard fairly regularly – regardless it does not stop me from have a good old squizz!! When i do buy I like to buy fat quarter bundles or layer cake bundles so I get the best variety possible from a collection.

    make all the difference in a much better looking light.

    Thanks for those fun instructions! I wish I had some lamps to play with! I do have a question though…. as you were doing the demo I glanced over at my lampshade that I have and noticed that it is a little ‘indented’ in the center….. any suggestions on how to make a pattern for one that is indented?? Or would just the smoothing of the fabric kind of take care of that and then maybe you would just have more to trim off the top and bottom…. too bad I’m not in the market to recover that one to find out!

    I had embellished a lampshade once but never tried covering one. The video made it seem doable! For the knotted flower, I wonder how it would turn out if the knots were bigger and ultra suede was used instead of felt. Guess I’ll have to try it and find out!

    Great show! Love the lampshade ideas. Now, to tell you something about YCMT. This is the best site for your DIY projects! The patterns are so cute and so easy to follow. I purchased the personalized name pillows and have made them for my daughters friends as birthday presents. Funny, she has been invited to lots of birthday parties :) The hand bags are adorable and also the darling kimmy doll is so cute. I bought the pattern and I don’t even have younger children to sew for (Grandchildren someday). You will never go wrong with one of their patterns!

    The most important tip I got from this episode was to purchase the fabric AFTER the pattern is cut and to think what it will look like with light behind the fabric!

    I’d love some new handbag patterns and I love the children’s clothing patterns!!

    In your 2nd helping, would it be possible to show an uplcose picture of the flower you made at the end? It was still a little hard to see. Some of the projects would be easier to watch, too, if we could see from the angle you are at. For me, a very visual learner, I’d love to be looking at the projects from your view. Just a helpful suggestion!

    Thanks again for another fun episode!

    The lampshade program was great. Not something we all think of doing. I’m looking at all my lamps! I have purchased many patterns from youcanmakethis.com and I’m currently looking at the Sew Spoliled Presto wallet pattern and the Meghan Peasant dress pattern. I have many peasant top patterns, but sometimes the directions are too lengthy and complicated. I love the ease of the ycmt patterns.

    I actually went to the KSL website to see Kris and Kim demonstrate the flowers for the pillows. I have to say, I thought I knew all the simple ways to make flowers, but NO! I loved the patterns and the different ways Kim and Kris came up with creating these beautiful flowers. I especially thought the burlap flower was very unique especially being done on a styrofoam ball. Thanks for the patterns!

    So if I win the fabric from Material Girls Quilting I’ll be putting most of the fabric towards my goal. I rely on donated goods for this project of mine so every little bit counts heaps and helps make little ones warm at night. Its coming on winter here in New Zealand
