Me sewing?

Well maybe this time, I got some stock seat covers from OJ and they were slate gray, I have taulp interior that was in need of some help. So with a trip to Wal-Mart I found myself getting a sweing mechane and doing some work. I used the slate and the taulp and came up with this:

Looks good James, but where did you come up with a sewing machine that would handle that heavy material, and what did you use for thread?

I got the cheapest sewing mechane that Wal-Mart had. The seat covers are not that heavy, there like headliner materal. For thread I just used Upholster tread, It was'nt hard to do the covers had notches cut into them and you just line them up and go.

Looks good!!!!

I went the other way, Slate cloth to Taupe leather and it came out great.

Glad it worked out for you.
