Step 1: Cut and layout patterns

Picture of Cut and layout patterns
Have all your materials prepped and ready to sew.
Patterns may vary depending on shift knob and shift boot size.
Here I decided to combine the two into one continuous pattern.

Note the pre-stitch (1/8" in from the edge of the material)
this can be achieved by hand or machine.

Step 2: Lay out patterns

With your needle and thread weave between the 1/8" pre-stitched border.

Step 4: Sewn tight

Be sure to pull those seams tight.
The material will stretch to form the shape.
