DIY Back Seat Car Cover

If you have kids or pets, you know how they can destroy the back seat upholstery with accidental spills. Here is a cheap and effective way to help prevent stains with a DIY Back Seat Car Cover.


  • 1 1/2 Yards 60″ Cuddle Fabric
  • 1/4 Yard Solid Cuddle 3
  • 3 1/3 Yards Support Soft Foam Stabilizer
  • 1 2/3 Yards Shield Moisture Barrier Liner Fabric
  • 1 Pack Cord or Ribbon
  • Thread


Measure the seat you want to cover. Mark where the seatbelts are located and the curves. CUt out the curves of the seat.

Cut the cuddle fabric in half. Layer the fabrics. Start with a piece of cuddle fabric face down, top with support foam, then the shield moisture barrier and the other piece of cuddle fabric face up.

Cut the fabric to match the curves you previously cut on the foam. Then cut the slits for the seatbelts, about 1/2 inch up the cover.

Pin approximately every 2 inches. Then sew together with a sewing machine. Add some quilting lines to keep the layers together approximately 6 inches apart.

Cut 3 2 inch wide width strips of cuddle 3 for binding. Sew 2 of the pieces together end to end. Sew the strips to the curved side of the cover and the seat belt slits. Fold the binding over to the other side and pin in place. Sew the binding onto the straight back of the seat cover. Add the cord or ribbon to tie and attach to your seat.
