It takes a special sewing machine setup. I suggest that you talk with an upholstery shop and see what they say regarding the equipment needed. Some details of the one I had sown are attached.

The cover was an envelope made up of the top material with the top and bottom sown together. The metal sun visor skeleton type frame was inserted into the envelope and the envelope was sown onto the frame.
