Tips On How To Customize Car Seat Covers

It’s good to express your personality even in your car. One of the best ways of doing it is customizing your car seat covers. If you are wondering how to go about it, here is how:

Embroidery

This technique allows you to add your name, initials, or your nickname in your car covers. You should start by buying the covers and taking them to an embroidery shop.

For ideal results, you should buy black, white, brown, or gray covers. Car covers with these colors allow you to easily add your personality using a brightly colored thread.

Embroidery services are usually offered in many printing and custom t-shirt companies and for you to get what you want you should write a well detailed description of what you are interested in. You should describe the words, font, and thread color that you want.

Applique

This is where you customize the seat cover using your favorite sports team logo. You can also customize it using your favorite cartoon character or flower image. You should start by buying a fabric with images that you like. To make your work easy, you should choose a fabric with images that are large enough.

Once you have found the fabric, you should cut the images out and identify where you want to place them on the covers. You should then iron the image on the seat cover.

For ideal results you should ensure that you use the correct heat setting on the iron. To prevent melting of the synthetic material, you should place a piece of fabric between the iron and cover.

You should finish the appliqué by sewing the edges of the image onto the car cover.

Tie and dye

This is ideal when you are operating on a tight budget. You should buy white car covers and large rubber bands. You should also buy at least four colors of your favorite dye.

While sectioning off large and small areas of your covers, you should place each of your favorite dyes in a large bucket and dip each section of the cover in the bucket. For ideal results you should ensure that the car cover is saturated with the dye.

If you are using dark colors, you should repeat the dipping process. Once the covers are completely dyed you should rinse them with water, remove the rubber bands, and let them dry. To remove excess dye you should machine wash the car covers before use.
