My leather pocket cover

Ok so I can't sew so well,, it's good enough,,, I at least got the snaps on proper,,, If you wish a cover like these I think Wilcoy has them for sale in the For Sale section,,, mine was all worn out and torn, I am Mr. I gotta do it guy so I made my own, because it was something to do,, a challenge... Now Wilcoy's are far better, they are made by the Amish.... He has a great price on them too... this is what happens when you have a few beers then try to sew.. :lol:

I used leather,, it's a little harder to work with than vinyl... I sewed my finger twice before the first turn,,, it will only hurt until the pain goes away though... :lol:

where did you get your snaps at. all I can find are the larger ones.... or did you replace the base side on the fairing as well?

The Amish guy who made them ordered the snaps. I have no idea where he got them from. I had to order enough covers for him to use the entire box of snaps.

I have 2 covers for sale. They are the ones with snaps on 3 sides.
