The adorable Amy made some new cushions a couple of weeks ago using material from Terrys Fabrics. I had never heard of the company before (apparently I must have been living under a rock or something – they’ve been around forever!) so I popped over to the website. I’ve been wanting to replace the extremely shiny (causes reflecty chaos when TV watching) and dust-collecting nightmare of a living room lamp for ages, so after a good deal of rummaging I picked this fabric (but also wanted this and this and this, dammit)
The lampshade kit was really easy to use and took about half an hour. Because it works on a sticky-backed-plastic basis you don’t need a lot of fabric overlap, so the whole process is pretty economical. Unfortunately, I think I may have triggered a new obsession – I want to make lampshades for every room in the house. Although, given the difficulty I had choosing, that may not be a bad thing.
I’m also going to be in the market for new bedroom curtains fairly soon. I think I know where I’ll be getting my fabric.
