Cut out the arc pattern and the strip from lampshade material
(leave a generous back seam allowance if wire wrapped twice around). Glue
the arc portion of the lampshade to the wire rings using one of the Hug
Snug-wrapped bottom rings.
Glue the strip onto the remaining two bottom wire rings.
When the glue is dry match up the back seams of the two sections putting
the Hug Snug-wrapped bottom rings together.
From the inside of the shade sew the two sections together
using invisible stitches and matching thread. The Hug Snug-wrapped wires
may also be glued together and covered with braid.
This method allows the lampshade crafter to make a number
of sizes that resemble a full frame without the bother of finding just
the right lampshade frame size. The gallery will accept many trims and
borders that require use on a straight strip because they will not go
around a curved slated surface. This style shade can be decorated either
country, victorian or traditional. The decorative techniques applicable
to this construction method are endless.
