Here's the how-to you asked for

How To Re-Cover A Seat

What you will need:
Seat
Screw driver
Allen wrench (if pivotal)
Staple gun/heavy duty stapler
Material of your choice for new cover
Spray adhesive

Step 1: Take seat off of bike
Step 2: Remove the bumpers on the underside of the seat
Step 3: Remove the staples around the underside of the seat
Step 4: Slowly and carefully take the cover off. Try to not rip the foam padding underneath, as that will make the seat look all uneven and shitty once the new cover is put on.
Step 5: Spray the the entire topside of the seat with spray adhesive
Step 6: Place new cover on seat, and stretch it and smooth it out to get rid of wrinkles
Step 7: Tuck the fabric around the edges on the underside of seat
Step 8: Staple all around the edge of the underside
Step 9: Cut off excess material
Step 10: Cut hole in top of seat if seat is pivotal
Step 11: Put bumpers back onto the seat
Step12: Put seat back onto bike

That should be good enough to walk you through the process, just ask me if you have any questions.

I'd love to do this seeing as i have two seats, first off i don't know what to use and second i don't know if it'll turn out better or worse than it is now.
