  • If you still have the old one, I would use that to make a pattern for a new one using outdoor fabric, Linda. If you don't still have it, you'll have to measure the frame and allow for seams.

    If you have the frame from the original, you can put new fabric on it.

    If you don't have the frame, you could use an awning for a canopy.

  • For a temporary measure, my neighbor used a beach towel and binder clips.

    I'm not much of a seamstress, so my solution was a fitted sheet secured at the corners with safety pins. Quick fix for $2 from the Salvation Army thrift store!
