Intro: DIY Suede Shift Boot Cover.
Designing, patterning, and sewing a shift boot/knob cover.
Sewing Machine (optional)
Leather, Suede, Alcantara, Fabric, Microfibre.
Step 1: 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
Lay them out onto the shift knob.
Step 3: Start Sewing!
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.
Step 5: Install
Install and enjoy!
