I had the itch to make a lampshade tonight with leftover oilcloth. Probably everybody knows how to do this, but let me give a wee tutorial anyway:
1. Roll lampshade along fabric and trace. The shoe is there for interest.
2. Hot glue to lampshade (or, as in my case, attach with some old Barbie bandaids that were stuffed in the back of a drawer.)
3. Turn on.
4. Pat yourself on the back, you little artist, you!
