I need tips on making a car seat cover, never done it before so any tips will be greatly loved. Sorry if someone started a post like this before but all I could mostly find are baby car seat covers and that's not what I'm looking for  Cheesy

I've never made a car seat cover, but I'd try doing it like if you were making a slipcover for furniture (like you see on "trading spaces").  Lay the fabric on the front and back wrong sides out and pin where you need to sew.  And probably just make a hem along the bottom. 

I'm assuming that this is going to go OVER the original seat?  If you are totally replacing it, remove it and take it the seams apart and use the pieces as a pattern for the new seat cover.

Sorry I can't help more.

I don't know if this will help or not. I own an old car with LOW back bucket seats. Impossible to find store bought covers!
I went to Walmart and got 2 XL t shirts. Cut off the sleeves and sew them closed. Cut a small slit in the crew neck (in the back). Put in a shoelace for a drawstring. This is so you can slip it over the headrest and then tighten it up. Top of your seat cover is done! Slip it on and tie the shoelace around the headrest post. These are nice cuz they are removable for washing. For the bottom, seat part, I had some other storebought seatcovers. I just cut off the top part, just using the bottom, sitting part.
My take on easy seat covers.
