My brother has Muscular Dysptrophy and is confined at a wheel chair... He was getting pretty sick of plain black arm rests and head rest plus they were getting beaten up pretty badly...
So I sewed him some covers!!!
Here is the head rest...



And the right arm rest....

And the left arm rest...

It was a little harder to make than I thought but over all I think it turned out well...
I had to add elastic on the edges so that it would "suck it" to the actual form... Also for the arm rests I had the make an "elastic belt" to go around it where it needed held down in the back... I added a button on the bottom so that it can be moved...
Comments are aprreciated..

You did a good job. I bet your bro' is well pleased to have a sister like you. I like the fact that you can take 'em off and wash em or change 'em etc.

I still have some fabric left over so I may make a couple other "things" for his chair... I'm sure I'll be doing covers for the leg rests...
