"Sailing on the deep blue sea"
I'm adding this cake to the pretty and delish category of cakes.
I did this one as a favor after the original lady that was to make it backed out...
I so hope the mommy to be likes it!
|Plain ol Lamp Shade|
|I bought the color toile (I checked the dictionary and that's right) that I needed. And I cut the length that I needed... About 1 1/2" above and below the lamp extra.|
|Bunch the toile a bit along the length and roll up the end a couple of times. Like so...|
|At the inside of the top of the lamp carefully put some hot glue. Keep in mind that it is toile and it's not very thick. So be extra careful with your fingers! Place the rolled up end of your toile strip here.|
|Get your lamp and place the shade securely back on the top.|
|I cheated and bought a length of feather trim at Hobby Lobby. 5 ft for 9.99. I had a 40% off coupon.|
|All the feathers run side by side in one direction... or will if you smooth them that way. I stood the feathers up and glued them with the bottoms facing out. The beauty of the feather trim is that I could fluff the feathers up and down before the glue set up. Clear as mud?|
|Heidi got her a feather.|
|Here ya go...|
|I made some simple black toile rosettes to adorn the top.|
