Motif Lamp Shades
There's no need for sewing here, it's easy and fast to turn plain lampshades into 'designer shades' using iron-on Vliesofix.
This really is fun and makes it possible to coordinate your lamps in just minutes with all of the other fabric accessories in your room, simply by doing a bit of ironing!
Try a print which matches in with your bedroom or lounge area or create some unique lamp shades using colourful fabrics and character shapes for the kids.
You will need:
1 Plain lamp shade
Vliesofix (available at art or fabric stores)
1. Attach the Vliesofix to the back of the fabric using an iron on a moderate setting.
2. Cut out enough shapes to work around the shade.
3. Peel the backing paper from each shape, one at a time then place in position on the shade.
4. Fold the towel in half and place on the inside of the shade under the shape – this will help protect your hands from the hot iron. Using the iron carefully 'fix' the shape in position taking care not to scorch or melt the shade.
