Tuck Cut Fabric Edges

Create a clean edge by folding cut fabric under 1/2-inch and inserting between fabric and shade. Check finished seam as you go to ensure that the amount folded under is even, creating a consistent edge.

Glue Edges

Run a thin bead of fabric glue between folded fabric and shade. Firmly press fabric into place.

Finish Shade Bottom

Turn shade over and repeat steps five through eight on bottom side of shade.
