FABRIC (for one lampshade)
— Osnaburg unbleached cotton. To
determine fabric quantity needed
to cover the shade, measure the
circumference of the shade at its
base. If using a drum shade, the
base circumference is the length
of fabric you will need in inches. If
using a conical shade (wider at the
bottom than the top), add 12" to your
measurement to allow for the curve
of your shade.
