Cotton twill ribbon a ruler or straight edge spray adhesive, a cutting, implement I'm using a rotary cutter and cutting mat, but scissors will also work. Something to mark the fabric with and a hot glue gun. So, first I'm going to lay out my fabric wrong side up and take the lampshade with the seams down place it in the corner of the fabric and just roll it across the fabric to make sure that there's enough fabric and stop when the seam comes back Around and I just barely have enough fabric here. Next, I'm going to mark the top and bottom of the lampshade, where the seam is. And then slowly roll the shade and mark along the edge.
Now I'm just going to do the same thing on the bottom edge. Next, just draw a straight line: to connect the top and bottom lines and the same thing on the other side. Place, your cutting mat under your fabric, I'm using a rotary cutter, but you can also just use scissors you're going to leave about an inch on the Short sides and about half an inch on the long sides. This is pretty much an inch here, so I'm going to leave this. Now, I'm just going to dry-fit this to make sure it fits.
Now I'm going to use spray adhesive to coat the fabric, you want to lay something down on your work surface, like cardboard or newspaper, I'm going to fold over the edge and spray the other side. The adhesive stays tacky for a while. So you'll have time to re position so you're, going to line up the seam again and start rolling. Then I'm going to fold over the raw edges of the fabric. If your lampshade has any parts that you need to work around, simply snip the fabric and press around it, So the final step is to hot glue ribbon onto the inside edges of the lampshade, to finish off these raw edges. So to complete the polished, look you're going to cut it, put some hot glue on fold over the edge and glue the rest down.
