Need a Last Minute Creative Christmas Gift?

If you are a bit stuck for what to buy someone this christmas, then these kits are definitley worth thinking about!  I've just added them to my shop too!
 The Stick It version from Duffy London is great for kids. With a little help they can have their very own designer lampshade hanging in their room in no time.

 I used these kits at The Barbican's, Do Something Different Weekend.  The workshop was a family orientated affair and their were some fantastic results, from all out glitter and glue spreading, to  illustrated adventures and favourite things.  Great for using with paper or wallpaper as you simply cut the paper to the edge of the shade and use adhesive clips to click it all in place to the frame.

 For the full on professional version, this is the best option and ideal for using with fabric as the edges are neatly rolled around the frame.

I used a some vintage Thomas The Tank Engine curtain fabric to make this one.  It took just under an hour to make and has a really neat finish, if you take your time over carefully rolling the edges!  This is great for using left over fabric to match in with your room and not just for the kids room either.

I've got a small supply in my shop, so if you are a bit stuck...off you go!
