One of my favorite things I made this year was the shade for Pen’s Nook. Pen’s Scrap Fabric Shade hits all the marks with me. Uses all those strips of scrap fabric that I can not seem to stop acquiring, fun and ecelectic looking, easily customizble, great idea for a gift and gives you the chance to repurpose something that might otherwise end up in the trash (ack!).
I made another this weekend just for Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day! One lucky reader will win the finished lampshade. I had so much fun browsing the various blogs hosting giveaways on the last round that I really wanted to contribute this time.
You can win the lovely scrap fabric shade pictured above lovingly handcrafted by yours truly. Many of the scraps used to create the shade come from vintage pieces. In a wide array of colors ranging from raspberry to teal, the shaggy cotton strips add an eclectic appeal to the otherwise classic bell shade shape. The shade measures approximately 4 x 11 x 8.5″ and has a slip UNO fitter which means that the shade sits on the socket and is held in place by the bulb.
To enter just leave a comment on this post. Tell me where you would use the shade in your home or describe what you are crafting this week. Just be sure that I can grab your email address off your profile or from the comment in order for me to contact you if you should win. Winner will have 72 hours to respond otherwise a new name will be drawn. One entry per individual.
The lamp base used for the photos is just to show the shade in action and is not included in the giveaway. US and international visitors may enter. Winner is responsible for taxes, fees and adhering to the laws for their location.
Giveaway ends Friday 12/12 at 11:59PM PST. The winner will be drawn at random and notified by Sunday 12/14.
