Could You Be Loved?
The Bob Marley seat cover was one of the first custom seat covers Rafa and I made, and it remains one of my favorites to this day. We made this seat cover for our scooter, so it was something we didn’t have to worry about whether someone liked it, it was about bringing our own love of Bob Marley to something else we loved, our Stella scooter.
LIke many of our custom seat covers, the coloration in Bob’s face is achieved by layering colors and sewing them together.
The dreadlocks are made from wool roving, such a great material, fun to roll into the dreads, then I tied those off on the end and we sewed them onto the cover. The wool dreadlocks are soft and light, and have held their shape beautifully for 4 years, even getting rained on just gives them a better texture and feel.
We finished the seat cover off with 3 tiny buttons on the nub of the seat, “Three Little Birds”
Sometimes we get people asking us to make them a Bob Marley cover, but this one is ours, it’s a one of a kind handmade seat cover, like all of our customs, and a personal homage to a great artist.
On a sunny day, it’s great to go for a ride and have Bob by your side. We love you Bob.
Rise up this mornin’
Smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’, this is my message to you
