This pretty lampshade will be a cool idea for a girlish bedroom, so prepare cotton fabric, cut into 2″ wide strips at varying lengths, hot glue gun and glue sticks, a sewing machine and coordinating thread. Sew down the center of each strip, using the longest stitch on your sewing machine. Pull one of the threads on each side of the strip to create a gather. Begin making the rosettes by rolling one end of the strip inward. Continue to roll up the straight end until you’ve made a loose circle with your gathered strap and it resembles a rosette in the middle. Read the rest of the tutorial here and finish the lampshade.
