'Kay... think this might go here... Anyway. Me and my mum got new bikes last week.
The seats are not made for our... 'shapely assests' so the first few rides were hell. Not only because of the seat, but 'cause of the huge hills we rode up
Finally I decided to use my new bargin-bin fabrics (good stuff) for nice, soft, foamy, seat covers. Had some Foam left over from a mask I made a while back. Few layers of that, and the ride was much better. Did a few tests first before we figured it all out. Mine was the test subject
Here's the completed-ness
Shoe Lace, String or Rope
1. With foam, the thin stuff, cut out the shape of the bike seat. Include the sides of the seat. If you know what I mean. You can have as many layers as you want.
2. Use the foam as a guide to measure your fabric, leaving about an inch and a half. This will be your seat.
3. Measure the perimeter of the foam and cut out a long strip of fabric in that size.
4. Sew the long strip into a tube shape, leave half an inch for sewing.
5. Pin the tube to the perimeter of the seat, right sides together. Leave half an inch at the back for your rope/lace/string/gum.
6. Sew and turn it inside out.... DUN DUN DUN! =O a cover!
7. Once your two peices are sewn, thread a shoe lace, or strong sting, through.
8. Place all your foam layer onto the seat, then put your cover on top... You may need help placing the cover on... one person holding the cover in place while the other ties it, tightly. You don't want to be sliding around.
My distructions are a tad bit messy, I should have pictures to clarify a bit more by the weekend.
