DIY Island Pendant Recover!
{ PURE Beach Dream Home, post #10 }

This week I covered plain white pendant shades with our Bud Pattern Organic Fabric in Cayenne/Ink/Natural.  It was easier than I thought.  First I cut the fabric to size - about 2 inches bigger than the size of the shade.  I then ironed the fabric and used Stitch Witchery to hems 3 sides of the fabric (top, bottom, and one side). I used a spray adhesive on the back of the fabric and rolled it around the drum shade - smoothing out the wrinkles as I went around the shade.  I lined up the bottom of the shade perfectly with the bottom of the fabric - This made sure the pattern was straight.  At the top I made small slits to fit around the metal rungs, I then used fabric glue and folded the excess fabric over the top of the shade.  I also re-enforced the side seam with the fabric glue.  They turned out so cute!  These pendants will hang in the PURE Beach House above the 11ft kitchen island.  I can't wait to see them up!
