Step 4: CUT IT OUT.

Like Uncle Joey used to say, "CUT IT OUT" This is the least fun step, at least it's my least favorite...Basically here is where you're gonna be doing all the grunt work, cutting out your pattern and such.

When cutting these patterns out, if you made sure it was a tight fit, give yourself a good half inch for a seam allowance (cause if you don't you'll be having some troubles.) Refer to the Fabric Cutting Chart for the what's what of your pattern.

Make sure you use some sort of quilt batting, interfacing or foam, it'll add some comfy cushh. I used a quilt batting, it was a pretty thick one, so it's gonna be mighty comfy.

Keep everything pinned to the pattern, it helps keep it organized, at least until you need to sew it.
<p>Oh, what beautiful seat covers that were made for those car seats. A custom made seat cover is something that comes to my mind after looking at these seat covers. Especially in maybe getting one for the seats of my wife's car.http://www.prestige-sheepskin.com.au/showProduct/Car+Seat+Covers/Sheepskin+-+All+Over/Custom+Made+Front+All+Over+Sheepskin/Custom+Made+Front+All+Over+Sheepskin+Pair</p>
<p>The link to view how the seat cover is made is no longer available. Why is it that this photo is still up when the instructions are not available?</p>
Be aware! This is a great pattern, IF you do not have side airbags. There are special alterations that need to be made for seats that have side air bags.
Great idea. Are you using a serger? I just borrowed one from a friend and am making a quilt. Could of used this pattern last week as my husband just &quot;squeezed&quot; his vanilla shake all over the seat! lol Thx bunches
Check it:- http://www.protectiondeals.com/.. this is a good website for seat covers and car covers.
Exactly what I've been looking for elsewhere,(I should have come here first,doh) Recycled combat pants into Classic Range Rover seat covers ....here we go..!
HEY THANKS SO MUCH THIS WAS A BIG HELP.I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WOULD PUHLEEEEASE PLEASE POST THE MEASURMENTS OF THE PATTERN PIECES THAT WOULD HELP SO MUCH! THANKS.
Sweet!!! I love it. I just made a set of covers out of barkcloth scraps for my van this week and wish I had found your tutorial earlier. Love the way yours covers the whole darn seat.
Check out www.seatcoverman.com.... they've got some good deals on seat covers and you can put prints on them. I put a picture of a horse on my F150 cotton seat covers, two-toned them and they look and fit good. They also have saddle blanket material (the old-school rough and tough material) which is getting hard to find these days.
Ummmm, while neither cover is much to my taste (sorry, me and flower patterns don't mix!), this is a <strong>fantastic</strong> tut - exactly what I've been looking for, thank you!<br/>
I dig it. My car has no "me" to it at all and this would help. Very informative tutorial.
If you'd like to have your project Included in the Sew Useful Contest, be sure to add a link to your seat covers' Etsy page.
Neat! I'll keep my eyes peeled for some leopard print for my car. ;)
