I bought new shades for two old iron floor lamps I found for Old Farm, and made custom fabric covers to fit them. A large pad of newsprint is used to make the patterns.
The above shade has pinched (hand stitched) gathers in the colored stripes. This little barrel shade is from Restoration Hardware.
I was inspired by the hand-made walls, trim, door and nails we found at Old Farm...and I love adding stripes anywhere.
