My Jonathan Adler shade cracked a while ago, leaving an unsightly wrinkle in the shade’s fabric. So when Nicole’s Classes Instagram
follower @kikatmb asked for a how-to on making a fabric shade, it was the perfect opportunity to fix mine.
I used a medium-weight cotton fabric and minimal sewing (with a no-sew option). If you’d like a more extensive sewing lesson, check out my Sewing 101 course
. And if you try this how-to, please share photos with @nicolesclasses on Instagram!
• Kraft paper or leftover wrapping paper
• Pencil, ruler, scissor
• Fabric in yardage needed to cover shade (my 42" dia. barrel shade required 1-1/3" yds.)
• Sticky-back Velcro circles (about 3/4" dia.)
• Thread, pins
• Sewing machine
• Hem tape, optional
