Beetlemania

My sweetie was making fun of me a few weeks ago, as we were preparing for our trip.  You see, I was sewing, tricking out my VW Beetle as a matter of fact. 

If you’ve ever been in a VW New Beetle, you know there is A LOT of window/glass surface.  It’s because of the cute little dome shape of the roof, makes the windows larger than the average vehicle.  And there are no visors, or shades, to block the sun coming in the side windows.  So…I made some.

Cute little Joel Dewberry home dec weight fabric visors with a durable black rip-stop cloth on the side that faces out.  So, my sweetie was teasing me three days prior to our car trip, but on day one of the trip, not one hour into the drive, he was praising my foresight and ingenuity. 

My car is a very light, soft aqua green color, so the Joel Dewberry fabric matches perfectly.   And, lest the seat belts felt left out, I decided to make seat belt covers to cushion the driver and passenger’s neck while strapped into the car.

What?!  You don’t sew accessories for your car?  You might want to reconsider…
