the commercial ones sucked
I decided to stop settling for something that wasn't "me" and attend to a long-standing minor annoyance in my life. I had these cheap car seat covers that didn't stay on the seat right and honestly did not match my car very well. I looked all over for handmade ones and didn't have much success. I looked at various stores and balked at paying $20-$40 each for something that was either mind-numbingly plain or overly cartoony or wandering into the macho/bad ass zone. $60 in materials later and some time investment to figure out the engineering plus the great tutorial I found on Instructables, I now have these perfectly awesome car seat covers to compliment my car.

I used the old covers as a pattern and went from there. The fit is not perfect, but the old cover I used as a pattern never had a very good fit either. I am happy with my first attempt at this and can't get over how cool the black and white dots look down the sides. Now I have visions of dash board pads and a back seat cover for at least the lower part of the seat.

These are awesome. I'm about to do this myself for my boyfriends car and never done it before so if you have any other tips or tricks, I'd really appreciate :]

Nice! Even better is that you can machine wash them!!! I need mine to protect from spills, so I'll line them with diaper pad material. :)
