Personalize your ride!
I just bought a new car and decided to retire my old furry steering wheel cover. I soon found that it's impossible to find cool covers anymore. While in my closet I found a scrap of fabric I used to make a really cool lime zebra skirt a few years ago. I light bulb went off in my head and I ended up with the most awesome car decoration ever! After that I found another scrap of steampunky clock fabric to do the tutorial. Enjoy!

    Sew the short ends together then sew up the sides that were pressed down to make piping for the elastic. Be sure to leave the seams open 1/2" to pull the elastic through.

I mum would love this! None of the covers fit her car because she has a smaller steering wheel.
