recycled lampshade - bird cage - mobile

inspired by the lampshades in 
"Granny Chic"
by bloggers Dottie Angel and Ted and Agnes

i wanted to make one since i first saw one on Dottie Angel's blog
it is such a happy sunshiney piece.

i'm now scouring the charity shops for more ratty old lampshades to recycle!

I made myself a little pouch/purse/bag thingy :)
This is the first time i've actually sewn in a zip
