I want to make a simple lamp shade or cover for one...

I am not good at sewing or anything for that matter. What would be a simple way to do this. The one I am trying to do has 6 panels .... not a round one ... and what is on it right now is cloth...

  • Not sure of the shape of your six panels but I just had a piece of cotton material and put a hem in the top and bottom then pulled elastic through both hems and sewed the sides together. You can also staple or pin them.
