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

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

Step 5: Install
