Made some suede boots for my E46

Over the weekend decided to practice sewing. LOL. Wanted my E-brake and shifter boot to match my headliner and red stitching to complement my Imola red door inserts.





I think they came out really well. I'll also be adding red seatbelts up front and red 4-point harnesses for rear seats (for the kids)

Well done, you will make a great wife someday. The grey suede isn't really doing it for me, would look far better in black IMO. Perhaps you can dye them.

Beautiful. How about redish and bolder stitch? Definately black suede will be better.

Used the same material as I used on headliner, thats why its grey. Did'nt have black at the fabric store but really think the grey is a far better look on headliner. Used some embroidery thread on test pieces and it was too much.
