Trim Elastic off Seat Covers
Start by cutting the elastic inner ring off the seat covers. The little strings and pieces of fluff from the covers can be messy, so give yourself a few minutes to clean up.
Cut to Fit
Next, make a straight cut toward the center of the cover. Then, cut a small circle in the center that is just big enough to fit comfortably around the wearer's neck. Finally, cut a jagged line around the outside border of the cover.
Accessorize a T-Shirt
Use sharp scissors or a craft knife to make two small cuts on each side of the circle and thread a piece of leather string, tying the "vest" together.
Any white T-shirt with long sleeves will work to complete the costume. Simply wrap a length of black or brown leather string around the wrists and tie. Pair the vest and white shirt with brown sweatpants and a thick brown belt.
