How much fun is this? A crochet lampshade! Several times already seen it on Pinterest. In the bedroom of my parents hangs a lamp with a beautiful crocheted cap and i love that! So often enough, I thought; ‘I would like this in my house to’!
In the living room I have a wicker chair and for a long time i wanted a floor lamp that would be best able to bring a little more light. Until now I did not know how and what. When i was visited my brother, my sister in law give birth to a son, i saw a crocheted lampshade: so that was the beginning to started my own design crochet lampshade!
Inspiration on Pinterest
When I walked in the action(a store in Holland) I saw a lamp and thought, ‘yes I’m going to do it, I crochet my own lampshade!”
On pinterest gained some inspiration to see what I wanted for myself. And actually I think it’s nice not to crochet in one color and one stitch, so I chose to use a granny square as the basis for the lampshade.
Crocheted flower cushion
Now I have made last summer a crocheted flower cushion. (This can be read and seen HERE.)
And thought: ‘I’m going to use the same colors as the crochet flower pillow.
What do you think of the lampshade? It is a first time and I just improvise, I should really do this more often to get it more beautiful and tighter. But I actually think for a improvisation it has become quite nice for a first time 😉
