Item details

Make this delightful robin lampshade! This is the first lampshade in the brand new range of 'Make It by Jo Hill' wildlife fabric kits.

This kit gives you everything you need to make a lovely lampshade featuring a robin in grasses. Use the unique template that I have designed and create your very own wildlife piece! The finished lampshade measures 20cm (diameter) by 18cm (height). The design can either be completed by hand or by using a sewing machine.

The box contains all of the components required to make your lampshade, including luxury hand-dyed fabric pieces and superb quality backing fabric.

There is a co-ordinating robin cushion kit also available in this range.

Inside the box you will find all of the necessary pieces to create your lampshade, including full instructions with accompanying colour photographs, and a design layout of the completed piece to show you exactly what - and where - to sew. You will also learn how to make up your finished stitched piece into a professional lampshade!

This lampshade is an intermediate sewing kit and is aimed at those who have done some free-motion embroidery or hand sewing before and want to practise their skills. This is the perfect way to put your sewing skills into practice and make something lovely for your home! Full instructions for making the design and turning it into a lampshade are provided.

If you have not done free-motion embroidery before, you would be better to start off with my Beginners' Kits - coming soon! Fill in the form here to be the first to hear about them. Or you could join me for a free-motion embroidery workshop where you'll create a wildlife piece. You'll learn all of the necessary skills to then complete this kit at home!

You will also need to have the 'extras' listed below. I recommend the Gutterman Sew All thread in black.
