Renew Existing Window Shades

I wanted to change the shades on my dining room light to match my decor. Shades (I have 5) are very expensive and the choices are not great. I made a pattern with newspaper, transferred the pattern to fabric, added iron on interfacing for stability, used fabric glue at the seams, and glued a decorative braid at the top and bottom edges. I pop these on over the existing shades and change them whenever I want.
