Boring Lamp Shade-No More

I like this lamp, because It's re-purposed but I've never been crazy about the shade.
Again, I was inspired by Pinterest... and got o work.
I received some Lotta Jansdotter and Orla Kiely fabric fat-quarters for Christmas (I requested), but was not sure what to do with them. They were too small for any big projects, I've embellished a few towels, and some canvas bags so far, but nothing else. So I decide to use some of those fabrics as well as lots from my "projects past" fabric stash.

Anything colorful was cut into strips.
And tied, and tied and tied
I like my new shade a lot better, and the colors go so well with the map on the wall. And it fits the Boho phase I'm going through right now quite nicely.
This was a really fun project, and I'm in the process of writing a tutorial for it. It's no sew, no glue just cut and tie, and tie and tie and tie.

I have several wire shade frames, have tried different ways of covering them, this is a new one, and I have plenty of fabric. I'm sure it would be fun. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll be watching for the tutorial.
