I'm tempted to use some of my fabric to redo the interior of my car (seat covers front and back, roof cover thingy) Do any of you have any suggestions?

I know I can sew and embroider to fit the seats, but is there anything you think I should watch out for?

Spray glue and watch out if the fabric is too heavy when doing the roof lining of your car. You can take out the side plastic brackets that surround the roof lining and the roof lining will fall out.

I was thinking of doing the same exact thing. I am planning on keeping this car forever, and I thought it'd be nice to put some work into it.
I was going to use staples as they'd be easier to remove if you get bored of the print as opposed to glue, but I don't know how tacky that would look.


Basically I just wanna see the results. Post pictures when you're done, and good luck.

If you live somewhere where your car will reach 120 degrees inside on summer days(i.e. Texas), spray adhesive will melt and the fabric will peel off.

There are hand held http://www.amazon.com/Singer-Stitch-Handheld-Portable-Machine/dp/B000GJALGS]sewing machines that are pretty easy to use.
