Lampshade Sewing Projects - 12 patterns

I love handmade lampshades! While they perform an important function in shading the light bulb and diffusing light, they are also an attractive decorative feature in a room. In a lot of houses, a lamp is off for longer than it is on, therefore it is important that it looks good as well as being purely functional.
