Summer's heat is only a month away, you might have noticed that when you get off work, or go back to your car from shopping at the grocery store, your steering wheel is SCORCHING HOT!
If you have a black leather wheel like I do, you know you've thought about how to prevent burning your hands by either blowing whatever cool air you can get out of your A/C onto the wheel, using your windshield visor, or placing a towel over your dashboard, etc. But it just never works - and that's when I found EmbellishMePattyV.
EmbellishMePattyV is owned by the lovely Patty Virginia, who hand-makes custom steering wheel covers for every car, every model, and every wheel size, for a lower price than buying a cover at the store! For the past 9 months, her Etsy shop has hundreds of customers who no longer have to worry about waiting to drive until their steering wheel has cooled.
She offers various print patterns to choose from and all you have to do is measure your steering wheel so she knows your wheel sizing, and she'll take care of the rest! Not every steering wheel is the same size, and therefore Patty has a very helpful instruction link on her policies page to follow when measuring your wheel.
I have one of Patty's covers on my car and I love it! The Tropical Steering Wheel Cover's sizing was right on, and the sewing was perfect. I also like that the cover also helps prevent the wear-and-tear of the steering wheel itself, especially since I just got a new car.
All covers are made with 100% lightweight cotton fabric lined with flannel. They are also accented with two grip strips on each corner to secure the cover to the steering wheel and prevent it from moving - this is a great safety feature and it works!
Patty's steering wheel covers are worth it. Don't go to the local store and spend ridiculous money for a cover that will still get hot, not protect your hands, and isn't the perfect style for you. Patty's covers are very affordable at a price under $17 and make great gifts! Recent grads, birthdays, just-because gifts, they're all great events to give someone you care about a car accessory that works.
