  • DIY Lampshade kits - couple of queries!

    Have just finished my first one of these kits, purchased a 30cm one as a trial before embarking on something bigger (more expensive!) I had a couple of minor issues which I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with. Firstly I had issues with the snap back edges in the PVC - when removing them they were taking threads with it (still sticky) which didn't leave me much to tuck in at the end... The next issue I had was with the top part of the pendant where the arms intersected with the ring - I couldn't wrap these very well (ended up snipping them to help but fabric was fraying badly so a bit of a risk!) And lastly the outside and inside seams look very scruffy! Any tips/advice on how to improve?
