I'm working on some Giraffe skin covers now, I'll show 'em off when they're finished, but I just started them last night... Hope to have them done by tomorrow night... :rolleyes:

Those look pretty sweet. You could sew some pockets onto the back of the driver and passenger seat to store stuff in. Maybe they are there and I can't tell by the picture. You do some quality work, as it appears to fit like a glove.

Those look great. How long did they take you to make?
05-20-2010 11:18 AM
Those are nice. I agree with Hexxum it would be even cooler with some storage pockets.
05-20-2010 11:23 AM
Make a solid color waterproof set and Id be game for some 03-06 covers!
05-20-2010 11:31 AM
Yeah I bet if you could sell some of your work pretty easy.
05-20-2010 11:38 AM
looks awesome! Good job! :)
05-20-2010 11:38 AM
Now all you need to do is lower it 8", and put 24" spinner wheels on it!! J/K....good job man!!
05-20-2010 11:39 AM
That is a fine example of quality worksmanship. Very nice indeed! :appl:

Great job, IG. Love the zebra stripes.

Those are great and the fit from the pics is perfect. The pouch on the backs is a good idea since a Jeep is lacking in the storage areas. I want to see the set you are working on right now, the animal with the long neck.

Thanks guys and girls! There is a pocket on the back of each front seat... If you look at the last pic, they start at the widest part of the seatback and go to the bottom of the seat. They can be waterproofed with 303 Fabric Guard, but would have to be treated after each washing. My favorite thing about them other than that they don't scootch when you get in and out, is that they are really easy to put on and take off... :) I have to get access to some other models of Jeeps to be able to make them for seats other than the same ones my '01 has.... Anybody near by want to volunteer? :D
JD, right now they are taking about 3 days to make... Lots of tweaking of the patterns and fittings take time, plus, I still have housework etc, to do in between sewing time.. ;) The ones I'm making now are all fleece and I'm trying to get a more realistic time frame for assembly times.
Thanks again y'all! :D That's the down side of being a creative type personality... I need lots of feedback!

looking great Inferno.

Nice work IG . . . they look great and the fit looks much better than what you usually see. One more vote for starting to take orders . . . I bet there are more than a handful of Jeepers that would be interested. I'm thinking black or dark grey with red highlights for my black Jeep!!! :D
05-20-2010 02:13 PM
I cant wait til you are making them to sell. Still looking for the fabric I want. :doh:
05-20-2010 02:36 PM
yeah I need to YJ ones for my 89. jeeps black so anything would go except pink :)
05-23-2010 05:29 PM
Those would look cool with a tire tread pattern.You may be on to something here.
05-23-2010 11:12 PM
05-23-2010 11:47 PM
LOL, Baja, if I could find the fabric, I'd be all over that! :D
The next set is done and looks even better.... Pics when hubby comes home with the camera....
05-24-2010 12:41 AM
Our little hottie girl is very talented indeed!Very nice.Look forward to seeing the next set as well.Out of curiousity,what material are you using?
05-24-2010 08:24 AM
All but the last ones are poly fleece with Sunbrella outdoor fabric for the insets. The latest are all fleece. It fits like a dream, nothing will hurt it, (well fire would be bad, I suppose :))and it is fade resistant. It can be sprayed to make it waterproof, and is easily washable. I'm curious to see how hot the all fleece ones are. I was initially discouraged from making them with fleece inserts since hubby was convinced they'd be hot. But I decided to try them anyway.... (I'm bad like that..:D) It's supposed to get in the 90's this week and the humidity level is up, so I'll get a chance to find out how they work.
05-24-2010 08:50 AM
so um......could you make a set for the 2003-2006 style seats? i think i know someone super interested in that purchase :cool:;)
05-24-2010 01:41 PM
As soon as I can find someone willing to let me have access to their Jeep for a few days, I will get a pattern made for the '03-'06 TJ's, and then I will definitely let you know that I have it available. :) Thanks! I may just have to find some seats to buy, but then I'll just have to sell them... That's kinda my last resort.
05-24-2010 03:03 PM
Those look pretty good. better than the original IMO.
JP90Talon, you know there are options out there that meet your requirements right?
05-24-2010 09:30 PM
Ok, boys and girls, here's the only shot I got today of the giraffe print ones...
