Wrap Fabric Around Shade
Holding the loose end, wrap fabric snugly around shade, overlapping the glued end. Temporarily secure excess fabric with clean-release tape to prevent fabric shifting.
Mark the Fold Line

Cut Excess Fabric
Remove excess fabric by cutting roughly 1/2-inch beyond the line drawn with fabric pen.
