steering wheel covers....

I've been wanting a steering wheel cover for awhile now to jazz up the interior.  I had some cute owl fabric I bought a couple years ago for an apron but never used it.

I read a couple tutorials and got the idea and then just made it up as I went along.  I was going to link to the one I liked but the link it gone.  I found her through pinterest and pinned it but clicking on the link takes you nowhere now....weird.  Also,  I added a bit of flannel on the part that lays on top to give a it little padding.

Okay, so after I drove around town with it on, I didn't like the way the fabric stuck out off the wheel.  
I'm such a worry wart, I kept thinking,  "What if my thumb gets stuck under it?" or "What if I stick my finger in it while turning and cause a wreck?"  (Yes, I'm neurotic like that...drives my family crazy.) 

So I whip stitched it down, around the wheel.  Now it feels more secure and that makes me happy.  Plus, I think it looks more finished.    Seriously y'all, it took longer to whip stitch it in place than it did to MAKE it.

But I like the way it looks and feels much better!

I made a matching trash can to replace the one with gnomes on it.  I lined this one with some vinyl that matched (who'd a thunk I'd have that in my stash o stuff?) and whipped it up.

I had made Matt's girlfriend a small trash bag for her car a couple weeks ago and had some leftover fabric.  I made her a steering wheel cover to match.   I just need to stitch it in place for her.

On his way out the door Matt asked if I had any giraffe fabric left and could I make her an ear headband.  She needed one to keep her ears warm during the parades last weekend.....
I love being able to say yes.  It is the little things that make you happy.

Can you tell she approved?   And yes, it kept her ears warm!

Cute, cute, cute! I've thought about crocheting a steering wheel cover but these days I have more thoughts than actual doing. I can tell that Matt's girlfriend fits right in. :) Best wishes, Tammy
