Very cute! Where did you get that first fabric? I have been trying to find something like that, but have had no luck.
I love this! Great idea!
Love the lamp shade idea! It turned out great. Darling fabric, Where did you get it? I would love to find some.
Great idea! I have a thrift store lamp to redo as well and I love the fabric you used. Thanks for the tutorial 🙂 The whole thing looks beautiful.
GENIUS! Seriously, I can't believe I haven't seen this before. Way to go!
That is absolutely darling. I love that fabric.
yep, works perfect! i did this a year or so ago or two drum shaped lampshades. so easy and now they look so much better. thanks for sharing 🙂
oh how i wish i could sew now.
very cute. i started to recover a lampshade in a super cute black and white alphabet fabric last week and i screwed it up sooooo baaaad.
Yours is darling! love the interchangeable idea!
Looks simply fabulous! I am so impressed with how you've taught yourself to sew. Maybe I'll take that leap someday. 🙂
What a perfect idea! Love it 🙂 I loved the fabric w/ the yellow!! So pretty..
This is adorable. I love the fabric you chose.
Thanks for linking up to Saturday is Crafty Day!

VERY cute and clever and I like that it is not a permanent fix, but a true "slip" cover! Love the black and white fabric, too, it is gorgeous.
Wow. I'm impressed. With you AND your hubby! 🙂
Wow, he IS a genius! I never woulda thought of that!
Great project! I love the idea of making a slipcover for a shade. Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks so much for posting! I have two odd sized lampshades – one a cone and one square – that have gotten torn (toddler hands playing …..) and I have been trying and trying to figure out how to recover them!
Great idea! You can dress your lamp whenever you want!
Thanks so much for the instructions… I have two lamp shades that I wanted to cover and your directions was such a help!

Hi there! spotted this from Along for the Ride…
Super cute slip cover for your lamp! thanks : )
soooo beautiful!!! I am in love with your decorating!! Maybe one of these weekends I need to meet you in SLC so we can go thrift store shopping together and I can learn your secrets 😉
Absolutely gorgeous!!! Your man deserves a huge smooch for that one! Tell him I am impressed (not that he knows me!) -love the slip cover, and wanted to mention that I have spray painted many a lamp cord to match the table or wall so it doesn't show – it works great!
Great job! Thanks for linking up to Home is Where My Story Begins! Hope you'll come back next week too.
I love that you can change it out as a slipcover shade. That's genius!
Um, love, love, love! I just recovered my patio chairs in the reverse of that fabric.
I LOVE that fabric! What a great idea!
That is completely stunning. Well done my friend.
You are a GENIUS! I was just looking at lampshades this weekend…wow…hello may I apply for a line of credit to buy some new shades?!
Making some slipcovers will be a great idea and SOOO much cheaper!
I also love the cord cover. Who ever made my black and white lamps used a BROWN cord!?! Dude! Think it's spray paintable? They have plastic spray paint…hummm I'll test it out with the red and yellow we used to redo the kids outdoor toys…if it works maybe they make a black! 🙂
I love this idea! I wish I'd discovered it sooner! I linked back to this post and I'd love it if you'd visit my blog! Thanks for all of your inspiration!
I love this idea. Thank you for the tutorial.
Btw…did you notice that your last name is spelled wrong on the first picture of the finished project?
I just happened upon this tutorial on pinterest, which is lucky because I happen to have a hideously ugly lamp that needs help. Thanks! I hope I'm not correcting something you do for a reason, I noticed that you( or your speak to type technology) consistently misspell 'seam' . I thought you might like to know, if you were unaware. I know I would! Happy Blogging!
awesome idea! So much easier than gluing it on. I have two lampshades in my living room that are super blah! Sorry to rush off, but I have to go find fabric to redo my lamps! Thanks so much!
