What you will be needing
- Strip of oilcloth, 9 by 100 cm
- Saddleshaped piece of oilcloth
- Elastic, 1,5 cm wide and 1 m long
You start with stitching the elastic on the border of the long strip its back. Make sure you put enough pressure on the elastic, otherwise the bikecap will be too loose.
Then you have to stitch the strip on the saddlepiece, wrong sides facing. Start in the middle of the back of the seat. Don’t stitch the first centimeters of the strip yet. Try not to stitch too fast, in order to be able to follow the shape better.
When you are at the end, cut the rest of the strip, leaving again a few centimeters. Once you have stitched the ends of the strip together, your bikecap is ready!
This cap will help you find your bike back in the bike rack more easy and prevent your saddle form getting wet…
