    Quilted Backseat Cover

    My husband has a new work truck and the interior is is good shape for being a 10 year old truck. So in order to keep the back seat and center console in good shape he asked me to cover them. First we bought a seat cover for dogs from Wal Mart, Boko's back feet had put several small tears in the fabric (the fabric was similar to wind breaker material).
    So I had some denim fabric and used the store bought cover as batting and a pattern. And to have a clean place for the grand kids to ride, my husband suggested a snap on cover. I didn't have any of the stonewashed denim left, but I did have some denim I bought from Hancock's before they went out of business, hence the two colored cover.

    Its heavy enough to keep his back claws from tearing it up and when it gets dirty just throw it in the wash.

    You need to get a business going. Sell at car shows: you know these guys and their trucks.

    I should be able to install it in the truck on Tuesday. Tomorrow I will have to shampoo the backseat first and let dry over night.

    Great job. My friend wants me to make seat covers for his truck and I have no idea where to start. He just have a single cab.

    Good job! And very creative to just use what you had for batting and a pattern in one!

    Quilters are such creative people. You took a good idea and made it work! Very nice looking in the truck I'm sure. Love the snaps.

    Thanks, I retired from the furniture/ auto upholstery business eons ago. I don't wish to go back, I use my talents on family and friends now. A lot less pressure..........lol
