I'll be riding in style now!

 

After a couple years of searching  I finally found an old "Low back" seat cushion to steal the pattern off of :D

Now just I just need to install :bounce:

Nice!!! I keep hoping to find the correct embossed ribbed (pleated) vinyl pattern for the center section so I can make some for the various tractors I have that need that red seat cover.

I've been looking but haven't found anything. I guess if you really wanted to you could sew the pleats in.

This should have had the red piping on the edges but that stuff was pretty expensive and since this is going to be getting grass,snow,dirt on it through out the season I figured to just have the seat down to bare basics.

 

Sure beats those Boat seats/ computer chairs you see on some of these! :D

He posted the patterns piecemeal in the thread.

Looks good!  Did you sew it up yourself or have a upholstery shop do it?

Tell her nice work!

 

I had some low back seat covers made for me over the summer myself.
