Spare wheel cover for the Corniche.

Kath has been busy in the trim shop making a cover for the spare tyre for our gold 1973 Rolls Royce Corniche.

She started by cutting out black carpet in a circular shape for the top, and a long piece for the sides. Strips of black vinyl were then measured and cut. Kath sewed one of the vinyl strips around the outside edge of the circle of carpet. The vinyl was then folded under and sewn again along the edge of the carpet. This created a bound edge. She then created a bound edge on the long piece of black carpet, along one of the long edges and both the short ends. This long piece of carpet was then sewn onto the round piece of carpet, along the unbound edge, overlapping the two short ends. Pieces of velcro were sewn onto the underneath of the short ends, to make sure it stays together while wrapped around the tyre.
