My son has been in his big boy room for well over a year, and I still haven’t shared all the projects! For a refresher, I started with this transport-themed appliqued quilt (doona/duvet) cover, matching art work and fabric bookends:
OLLSTA shade with a JANUARI base – a plain and simple combination.
Using the same striped fabric from the quilt, here's the final big boy room lamp:
8” x 37” Fabric strip (New Traditions Stripe in Chartreuse from Robert Kaufman)
Fold back clips or pegs
I’m going to start with some maths – sorry to the non-engineers, but I’ll try to make this simple! Here are the dimensions of my lampshade:
Fold the fabric in half (right sides together) at each of these marks and pin together. Measure 1.3” away from the fold at the top of the fabric and draw a straight line to the bottom of the fabric at the fold.
