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!
1 Cut out fabric to 44" x 4.5". (I like to cut out the pattern on a piece of wrapping paper first so I can use it later without having to measure again.
2 Fold the long edges in about 1/2" and press.
3 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.
4 Attach the elastic end to a pin. It makes it easier to feed through the piping. Feed it through then sew the ends of the elastic. Sew the seams shut. Repeat on the other side.
5 Hoozah! You now have a steering wheel cover that's almost as awesome as you.
