Total cost to me was about $30 USD.

$20 for two yards of Marine vinyl (local purchase at an Upholstery shop)
$5 for 3M spray adhesive
$5 for the seat cushion

I already had the other supplies previously mentioned.

Update

I'm pretty sure I used 1/8 inch staples and not the previously mentioned 1/4 inch ones.

Also, I did this as cheap as I thought possible and would still look good. Please let me know if you come up with something better.

I was thinking I'd give a gel pad a try for the next one I do.

Thanks but I have a job and a son. That takes up most of my time. TRat comes third to none. If I were to take orders I would promote the Boston One Fund and only accept donations. Minimum of $30(more if you want more) -- $20 for material and thread and $10 for a donation.
