This is fabulous!  Sure beats those boring, dull colors in my company car!

Did you use a tute or pattern or something? You have inspired me to do something like this for my company car!

Thanks for sharing!

OH MY GOD I HAVE A CABRIO TOO! Mine's bright blue, '98. What year is yours? Were these hard to make? I saw some FANTASTIC blue and white zebra print fur online that looks like it would match my pain and I've wanted to make seat covers for so long, but I've always been kind of intimidated. Any advice?

Basically this is the coolest project ever.

THANK YOU!!! Mine's a '91. Boy do those checks turn heads or what!! People talk to me EVERYWHERE- stop lights, parking lots... you name it!!!! I find myself giving out my cards more because of my car seat covers!  Cheesy I also have a shag red fuzzy set that is the same color as my car!! Tee hee! My husband says I change my car seat covers more than ... fill in the blank..... I'll try to find a pic of the shag red. FUN FUN FUN

No, these are not hard to make. I bought a cheapie car seat cover at Checker for like 15 dollars, cut it apart and used it as my pattern. Just make sure one side of the seat cover stretches. If you use a non stretch fabric, it won't go over the seat. You'll have to go high tech and throw in a zipper up the side... I just took the easy way out and made it like a big fitted pillow case w/ elastic casing. Same for the back seat. I just measured out the back seat and made a giant square, basically, with an elastic casing. Then I tucked the crap out of it and pulled it from the trunk so that it wouldn't blow out the back w/ the top down or that someone has to really work at it to steal it.

For the underneeath of the seats, I took bedsheet clips, shortened them and then clipped them under the seat to keep the cover secure. Two per and in a criss cross section. These can be reused for all your multiple sets!!

Also, remember to leave holes on the side for your seat handle ajustors. If the holes are too big, hand stitch it once on the seat. You can see in my checks, the holes are a little too big. I'm being a tad lazy this time and leaving it... already plotting out next set!

I love this! My seats are falling apart in my poor rabbit (that is right! Mine's a convertible rabbit, because it is so old they weren't even called cabby's yet) and I need to get off my tookus and do something similar....

Again, not clothing.

And really, when you think about it, it is car clothing..... right?!?!  Wink
