a new life for my lamp shade!

i was inspired by the fabrics i had left over from making my sister dresses for her Peace Corps adventure in Africa. i just made one panel out of canvas and used it as a pattern piece to fit around the lamp shade. i had only done this once before and that time i sewed all the panels together. sewing took way too long and it looked a mess when the light was turned on! so this time i decided to glue gun it all on. perfecto!

i made rufus a friend. she is made from all the scraps of fabric i had from projects in the past. i have named her alison in honor of alison! she was really easy to make. shes like a miniature pillow.
