Make your own bike seat cover by
following these simple steps.
I found this DIY project thanks to FOSSIL .
I actually have a little story to share with you all.
It started like this... well a few weeks back, I was on a bike high, I pretty much rode every other day for an hour around the neighborhood, hey, it beats jogging! Anyways, one morning I took it out, I was about half way up the street and around the corner.. when my bike seat just completely fell off! There I was, in the road, trying to put it back on, cars driving by, let's just say the ride home was ugh awkward.. I guess I rode that one a little too hard ehh?
Well finally last week I was out, and my mum picked a nice big bike seat out! Did I mention it was her bike seat that I broke... Opps!
But the good thing is now that we have to new seat, we can make a neat seat cover for it!
This is what you'll need:-Bike seat
-Sewing machine or needle & thread
Place cut-out fabric upside down and fold the edges inward about ½ inch all the way around, pinning as you go.
Starting at the back, sew around the cover approx. ⅜ inch from the fold. Make sure to leave an opening in the back as you finish – this is for the elastic to be pulled through.
Thread the elastic through the seam. (We suggest pinning a medium safety pin to the end of the elastic to help push it through.) Once you try it on your seat, tie the elastic so it fits snugly, but is still removable. Trim the ends or add some extra flair by stringing a few beads on the ends.
Here are a few examples:
Great idea, huh!
