We bought a Gazebo and needed to get some shade panels for it. Unfortunatley the ones they make for the Gazebo were sold out and only went half way down. I decided for the price it would be cheaper to sew my own and went ahead and did that. Used Canvas and a Printed Fabric. The Gazebo is 10x10 feet and the fabric was only 60 inches, that is why decided to add a printed fabric bottom to it. Sewn and hemmed, added heavy duty gromets to the tops and 3 on each side to attach to the sides. Here are a before with the mosquito netting and then after with the shade panels. I made it where I can roll them up if I decide to.
Let me know what you think

I was thinking of doing something like this when I owned that same gazebo.  Unfortunately we had one freak day in Indiana where we got 90 MPH winds for over 20 minutes and it completely decimated the gazebo.  I had to spend more than twice the price I paid for that one to get a much studier one with wider legs.  I miss the plant stands.  Sad

Did you use velcro or ties to keep them up when rolled up?

I use heavy duty gromets to hold them up (with Shower curtain rings)

This is really cool!  I love it when crafters can save some money and make their own stuff.  and by that I mean, some things you can buy cheaply but they don't last very long.  Maybe the cost of the canvas you used could have been the same price, or more expensive (I don't know, just making a point) than buying a ready-made item, but construction-wise, you are saving a lot!  Good work!

yes Alorralora,
the price came out to be the same as if I would have bought them, but then they would have been one color only and would have only gone down to about half way. So I DID get a better deal and I think it looks better, too. Was a bit awkward getting it through the sewing machine (since there was just sooo much fabric), but I think I would do it again if I had to.

What a great idea.  It looks so professional.  I love sitting outside--esp. without the bugs.
