finished project ..


i had an old drum style lampshade .. i had a big bulky pink sweater with awesome big pink sweater covered buttons .. i had the current issue of country living magazine, which has an article on recovering items with sweaters .. i had the desire to combine my pink sweater with my drum shade .. i did it .. didn't have to turn the bottom of the sweater under .. but did have to pull and cut and turn under the top - i held it in place with clothespins as i worked my way around, gluing and pinning.. let it dry over night and there it is ..
