New wheel covers

Wheel covers are expensive so we made our own.

Very Nice. What material did you use? What did you sew them with.

Thank you. Used our old covers to make a paper pattern. Made them with marine vinyl on a home sewing machine with a heavy needle. Embroidered them before sewing parts together.

Dan and Ann,
Just wondering, being a serious "DIY" type myself and, have done numerous projects similar to what you've shown, what was the cost of all the materials vs the actual factory produced covers? I know time and or labor doesn't really matter too much in situations like this if you're retired so, it's primarily the materials cost.

I see tire covers going on sale at Camping World quite often and, they're also sold at a pretty good price at the annual Quartzsite RV Swap meet/event, depending on if you attend or not.

While I've been a welder/wood worker/ plastics fabricator and much more for most of my life, I find sewing, with my Sailrite Industrial Walking Foot sewing machine, to be quite fun.

Sometimes it's just more fun and, dealing with the challenge to produce a project, even if the cost is the same or, more than a factory produced one. Just wondering.
Scott

I had a coupon for the fabric from Joann Fabrics and I did the embroidery myself so I'm not really sure of the actual costs.
