Steering wheel cover

I've been able to tackle some projects I've been wanting to do since the car got hit including wrapping the e21 steering wheel in new leather.  I love the look leather steering wheels that have a bit of age to them so thats what I was going for. This turned into quite the task but im happy with the outcome.  I found the leather scrap at local upholstery shop, dyed it a dark brown, and hand stitched it. Let me know what you think.

Wow, that looks great. Do you do much leather work?

 

No, this is the first time doing any kind of leather work.  No template for the leather so that was kind of a guessing game, since the leather stretched.  The stitching looks pretty decent but a more heavy duty sewing machine that makes bigger holes would have helped.  The leather feels pretty awesome.
