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

Fold excess fabric towards inside of shade and mark top edge with a temporary fabric pen. It's best to work on one end of the shade at a time; start with the top side.

Cut Excess Fabric

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