Steering Wheel Covers

I've been playing with a new design for my Etsy shop. Steering Wheel Covers.  

It took me a few tries to figure out how to make them reversible and still easy to sew. They are quilted with a nice wide band to keep them in place. Of course these are not for use while driving. They just help keep your steering wheel a bit easier to hold on a hot Summer day and there's been a lot of those lately.

It's not only hot down here in Florida this Summer but it seems all across the Northern Hemisphere the heat is extreme this year. Most days are in the high 90's with a heat index in the triple digits. Our house was getting too hot inside even with the a/c on so we had our attic re-insulated and thankfully that dropped the inside temps by almost 10 degrees. I'm hoping it drops our electric bill quite a bit too.

This Pokeball steering wheel cover is one of my latest designs. I'm trying to decide what I want to place on the reverse side. I also want to make some with quilt blocks on the front. Lots of ideas but never enough sewing time, right?

So, what are you creating today?
