Summer is here, and it’s time for road trips, camping, and outdoor adventures. But what about the mess that comes with all the fun? Wet bathing suits, muddy paws, and dirty clothes can wreak havoc on your car’s back seats. Worry not, for this DIY Waterproof Rear Seat Covers tutorial is here to save the day!
This tutorial is all about protecting your car’s leather seats from all the wet and dirt that a road trip has to throw at it. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway with the kids and dog or a long journey to explore nature, these seat covers are a must-have.
The process begins with measuring the seat, and the tutorial guides you through using a beach towel as a guide. You’ll need some beach towels, fleece fabric, a vinyl table cover, grosgrain ribbon, double fold bias tape, scissors, and a serger and sewing machine.
After prewashing the towels and fleece, you’ll pin the right sides of the towels together and stitch them. Then, you’ll lay out the table cover, fleece, and towels, pin the layers together, and cut the fleece and vinyl to match the size of your towel. Serging the outside edges ensures all layers are caught, and you’ll then lay the cover over the backseat.
The tutorial provides detailed instructions on marking the placement of ribbons to tie around the headrests, cutting holes for the seat belts, and creating a closure for the middle shoulder belt slit. The seat cover is machine washable, and the bright colors really pop against the car’s interior.
These seat covers are not just functional; they’re also stylish. You can personalize them with the same tie-dye beach towels used for the front seat cover tutorial, adding a vibrant touch to your car’s interior. They’re perfect for a day at the pool, beach, or a long road trip.
What’s more, these seat covers are pet-friendly, protecting the seats from dirty pets. So, if you’re a pet owner, this tutorial is a must-try. The tutorial is well-structured, easy to follow, and offers a practical solution to a common problem faced by outdoor enthusiasts.
So, gear up for your summer road trips and make sure your car’s back seats are well-protected. With these DIY waterproof rear seat covers, you can enjoy your outdoor adventures without worrying about the mess. Happy sewing and happy traveling!
