2° Step.  Tools :

First of all I need a soft pencil to design the template on the fabric rear side and the scissors to it cut out.  The vinyl glue (or special fabric-glue) and a flat brush to spread an adequate glue measure on to paste the fabric to polystyrene panel; some pegs or clips to hold and press it down while it dries.

3° Step.  Fabric & Template :

I wash and iron my fabric perfectly.   It is important to draw the template to cut the fabric in the right measures.  In this case, I use the polystyrene panel of the Löbbo lampshade like a template.
