YESSSS. My 90 Jetta and I agree that this is fabulous. Also...VW swap is what I'm thinking now, seeing all these Volkswagen-driving crafters!

Wheee, this post made me so happy! I have an 88 cabriolet (though its got a 98 front end... accident... oops). The seats are in dire need of replacement though. We tried buying seat covers once but they didn't work at all  - never considered making my own! i wonder if my limited sewing skills could pull this off... do you think this is a possible project for a beginning sewer?

my volks is named Myrtil btw Wink

very very cool!

Yes if you have the patience to drive an 88 vw than  you can totally whip these out! I bought a seat cover from checker - just one! - and cut it up and used it as my pattern.

What works the best is if you pick fabric w give to it. I then used mattress/sheet clips underneath the seats to keep it nice and smooth! Good luck and send us pictures!

great looking seat covers! I'm just about to make some, so the advise came in handy.
We're borrowing my in laws car for the holiday and I thought a gray 2008 skoda could do with something a bit more fun............. And at least if they don't like em we can save them for when we finally own a car......... Smiley

Do you know approx. how many yards of fabric this took?  I have a Pontiac Vibe.  I love my seat covers, black with geckos on them.  They have faded out and the little geckos are looking sickly.  What kind of fabric did you use?  I have a week's vacation in August and this would be a great project for me.  I pick up fabric at the thrift a lot.  I'm going to start looking for seat cover fabric.  I really love yours.

My husband has spoiled me by getting me a white 1988 VW Golf Cabriolet for my 30th this month.  I've been thinking of doing something with the upholstery and I like your idea although I'd go for something more...subtle.  After that, I'm going to get me some RABBIT badges for it so I can call it my white rabbit Smiley
