It is truly spectacular.
The body is made from crocheted doilies and pot holders...I think I want pants like this! And below is a bear upholstered in jumpers!!!
Buttons! All BUTTONS!!!
Yes I know!Exclamation mark overload!!!!!!!!!
Meanwhile...back on the ranch...I gave the lamp a mini-mexican-makeover using Mexican oil cloth. Rathdowne Fabrics has a fantastic selection of printed oil cloth at the moment. Great for place mats, tablecloths, homemade lunch boxes and bags.
For the lamp shade I simply got the shade, laid it on the wrong side of the fabric and rolled it along, tracing the shape with a pen. Because this fabric doesn't fray I just cut it out, sewed on the fringing to the bottom edge and then one seam along the side to join it. Then I just slipped it over the shade. The light comes through beautifully too!
