After making lampshades for my sons, my wife decided that we "need" a new lampshade in the bedroom, as a start to the redecoration that she says we "need" to do.

The theme she's chosen for the bedroom is "hare and moon" (there are wild hares in he fields around our home town), so this is what I came up with.

Step 1: Design

My wife wanted an image that combined a hare and the full Moon.

I sat her down with the computer and got her to collect a group of images that she liked - combining elements of the various images, I drew up the cutting files in Inkscape. Different versions of the same file are attached to this step.

The top of the shade is sized to fit a standard British pendant lamp fitting, so the hole in the centre is 3cm across.

<p>It's beautiful. It reminds me of the children's book, &quot;Guess how much I love you?&quot; Well done.</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
