What was your inspiration?
This idea came about because I have a friend on oxygen and the tanks were banging around in her car and then when she got in her wheel chair she had to hold the tank in her lap which froze her hands in the winter. This cover makes the tanks quiet, cozy and decorative. The pocket is new- she needed somewhere to put the plastic tubing because it was dragging and tangling. Now she can just roll it up and stick it in the pocket. Also she can keep her cell phone in it for emergency, it will be nearby.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I made her life easier plus her telling me how the people admire her oxygen tank covers.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The project is a basic pattern. Make it your own, choose what you think are good color schemes, and if you have a fresh idea to add to your project, go for it! Don't try to be perfect- everything that you do, even as compensation for a so called mistake, makes the project unique to you. Relax, have fun, don't rush, and find motivation in how you will make someone's life just a little more comfortable. If you are a praying person, I suggest you pray for the people who will benefit from your project. ;-)
