This time I want to share my experience in creating a shade in patchwork technique
We will need:
109 different patches: 18 pcs. each color of different shades (I have 6) + 1 view for edging.
We take the ready night light. I have it, to put it mildly, not new, which led to the idea of replacing the lampshade.
We disassemble all the parts that are being dismantled. We unscrew the light bulb. From the base, we remove the tissue part.
Now create a template. We take the old tissue base, lay it out on paper and outline it along the contour.
I decided that my shade would consist of 6 colors, respectively from 6 parts. Therefore, we need to divide the curtain exactly into 6 parts. We take a string or line and from the edge to the edge apply it directly on the drawn lower and upper boundaries.
We get 2 lengths, which we then divide into 6 parts.
Mark these parts on the template.
We connect the marks on the vertical and get 6 equal parts.
Now we decide what color our night light will be. We get our scraps. At me, they are stored in boxes, spread out on shades.
Since the night light, in my opinion, is more intended for the nursery, I decided to take bright shreds of different colors: Red, purple, blue, green and pink. Each block is sewn from 18 different fabrics.
Cut the pieces of 3 cm wide. And start sewing the Christmas tree according to the scheme. First 1 and 2, then to it 3, etc. Sewing from the center.
Be sure to iron the increase on the seam in different directions after each stitching.
Here is a Christmas tree is obtained from the inside and outside.
In a similar way, we sew all 6 parts.
Determine the sequence, what color, where will be located. I decided to alternate the cold shade with warm.
Now cut the templates and put them on the stitched block exactly. For this, it is necessary to connect the central line of the template with the center.
We are looking for a center on a stitched block.
We put the templar on top, connecting the centers.
We split two parts and cut off with an addition to the seam of 0.7 cm on the sides. Above and below the lampshade will stay on the oblique bake of a different color, so there is no need for an increase.
With the rest of the details, we do the same thing as with the first one.
We remove the template.
Fold the faces to each other and sew all the details according to the order. Be careful that the increments on the seams do not turn out.
At this stage, it would be possible to conceal the reverse side with an additional cloth or in a different way to decorate, but I liked the received “Fur-tree” and I decided to leave it like that.
Sew the outer parts.
We press the seams on two sides. And face to face we sew the oblique bake 4 cm wide to the bottom and top part. I took the oblique bake from the gray color, under the ceramic base of the lampshade.
We turn out.
We enclose a round frame.
Fold the edge by 0.7 cm, approximately to the ring and fold once again the bake, pierce.
Now manually sew a needle forward, a secret seam.
Crop unnecessary strings from the wrong side.
Do the same operation with the top edge.
Everything is ready, we enjoy the result. Since the lamp shade is multi-colored, it can be put on any napkin in any color scheme.
All is ready!
