I Found It!

I finally found the black trim I wanted to put on the little lamp. I can't decide if I like it or not.

Originally I wanted to make a cover of red tartan fabric with this trim on the top and bottom. The shower curtain I made for this bathroom is made of that fabric. So I searched my scrap pile (looks more like a mountain) for bits to make this with - no luck. ( I am positive I will find some later, now that I have gone ahead and glued the trim on.)

Now I don't know if I like it or not. Maybe it would look better with just the trim on the bottom. Here is a closeup of the shade:

This is a stretchy velvet ribbon in the middle with gathered organza on either side of it. I didn't realize how uneven the trim was until I looked at this picture. It doesn't look that bad in person.

I think I will just live with it for a week or so. Hopefully I will find that tartan fabric or find some at the store.

I think I like it... but then you said velvet and then I became a little skeptical. But it looks good from afar!
