After the two pieces of each side of the console are sewed together, they need to be opened up and laid flat to go under the sewing machine's needle. They don't really have any angles, just gentle curves. If they had sharp 90 degree angles, they would be impossible to do. I just slapped these two pieces of vinyl together, but you should get the idea.
