How to Make a Boat Helm Cover

In this video we will show how to pattern and sew up your own boat helm cover. We will be using Sunbrella Marine Grade fabric from Sailrite to make the cover and snaps will be used to secure it in place. This helm cover is rather small, but the principles and concepts for larger covers are obviously covered in this video.Order fabric and supplies at:  to Make a Helm Cover Chapters:
