Did you sew your husband a cover? I'm also thinking to try my hand at this after looking at dozens of covers and thinking I could do better lol. If you did sew one, do you mind telling us for what car/truck, what size dimensions more or less and how you dealt with the bottom of it i.e. elasticized, buckles, grommets etc? I'm familiar with waterproofing sprays and think I could make a soft breathable multi layer waterproof cover more to my custom needs for outdoors. Let us know how it went and what machine you used!
