Tie and Dye Lamp Shade
Take four wooden sticks approximately 8" long.
Tie them into a square as shown.
Take a quarter meter of white cotton fabric.
Firstly, fold it into half and then further fold it into a fan fold.
Start folding the fan folded fabric from one end, into a triangular fold.
Tie the three corners of the fabric tightly with a thread or a wool. Wet the fabric under a running tap, tightly squeeze the wet fabric to remove all the extra water.
Take Fevicryl Acrylic Colour - Lemon Yellow 11, make it watery and dab it on the three tied corners of the damp fabric. Dab Prussian Blue 19 in the centre and leave it to dry.
Open the folds and iron the fabric after 24 hours of drying. Cut the fabric into two pieces of about 6" x 10" in rectangular pieces.
Take another quarter meter of the cloth and tie the fabric tightly with the wool or thread inserting a coin in the manner shown in the image.
Open the folds and iron the fabric after 24 hours of drying. Cut the fabric into two pieces of about 6" x 10" of rectangular pieces.
Turn the fabric over the sticks. Stick the edges with Fevicryl No Stitch Fabric Glue. Leave it to dry.
Overlap the hanging corners of the cloth on each other and stick it with Fevicryl No Stitch Fabric Glue. Stick the pompom lace and the felt flowers to complete the look.
