Can any of you talented people that are making their own interiors provide the rest of us with a pattern for custom-fitted seat covers? That would be awesome. Then the rest of us no-talent shmucks can make a nice interior without paying the crazy prices of Katzkin covers and use any material we want.

Maybe you can even sell the patterns.

Maybe some real profiteering mofo will actually make seat covers for people and sell them (at a cost not unreasonable). I don't think I took enough home-ec to successfully do my seats.

I understand that.....I hope someone does cater to our needs for a little bit of a profit!

There was a time when home ec had me sewing tons of stuff.....wish I would have paid attention and realized it was useful for more than altering my dress clothes! :cool:

made my own seat covers once. Turned out pretty cheesy lol. Better material selection is a must next time. THere is a place in British Columbia that makes custom leather seats with or without heaters. I bet if there were enough of us they would start making them for hyundai's too. I think they only do trucks right now.

that is easy if you are making your own. Just handstich the part of the seam that covers the airbag and do the rest with a serger or sewing machine.

If you want a pattern, get and old seat and cut it apart into each panal. Now you have a pattern.

However, u better have some skills in both sewing and upholstering. It aint easy, either one. Ask silet.

Plus the material, especially leather is pretty expensive. I can do all that stuff but if it were me (I have the skills and tools), but i would order them from a place like katskin instead.
