Hey all...

Ok so I guess this is the place to post this...I am just getting a car (as I sadly *sniff* put my scooter away for the cold heartless Canadian winter) and thought I MUST spruce it up...it is beige. Beige through and through...but cheap...so I thought how can I spruce it up...

So to craftster I jumped...and found...not a whole lot! (maybe I didnt search very well but anyway...)

Here is my first kick at making one of those little cd holders for your car visors....

and here is the back with the little elastic loops...

All set for my giant drive to Sudbury (10 hours) coming up this weekend! Cheesy

Anyway...just thought I'd share it.

I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time now!  Care to share any about how you did it?  Yours looks absolutely fantastic!  I love the fabric.

It was SUPER easy (easier still if you can sew on a machine in a straight line!) I think it would make a really good first project...

Anyhoo....here goes my explanation.

You need:

3 pieces of fabric the length and width of your visor (for me it was 14.5" x 5.5")
Two pieces of elastic or velcro the width of the visor so you can attach it.

Lengths of ribbon for each slit you cut (optional)

1. Ok....so take a CD and trace it onto the wrong side of a piece of fabric the ammount of times equal to how many slits you would like. (so if you want to fit 10 cd's, you make 10 slits)

2. Sew the lengths of ribbon along the slits with a straight stitch. It doesn't matter what side of the slit you put it on really. I put mine all on the "bottom" of the slits.

3. Place your fabric in this order: 
         Bottom: Untouched precut piece of fabric. RIGHT SIDE UP
         Next: Add the two pieces of elastic or velcro or whatnot placing them so they don't interfere with the hinges on your visor.
         Then: Place the piece of fabric with the slits RIGHT SIDE DOWN
         Last: Place the last untouched precut piece of fabric RIGHT SIDE DOWN.

4. Sew all around the long edges and one short edge.
5. Flip it inside out and sew shut the last short edge.
6. Hang attractively in your car! Cheesy

Note....I'm not really picky about the CD's in my car getting scratched and whatnot...They're all crazy mixes anyway. But if you wanted to make a similar pouch thinger with individual pockets you would just replace the slit layer with overlapping pockets and get rid of the "Last" piece of fabric.  You could also make the "last" piece of fabric be felt or something to help protect the CD's.

Anyway...that was my first attempt at explaining something I've made so I hope it turned out okay.

Please post pics of yours if you decide to make them!

This is a really cool idea - I might try to make one for my sister for Christmas!

Wow...I love that...I gotta make one...!!

Thanks!  I'm gonna have to try it.  But I am crazy about my cds not getting scratched, so I'm going to have to use the overlap method! Smiley

What a great idea!  You know you're going to have to be careful of who you let in your car now because you know they're going to want you to make them one, too!  Great job and nice fabric choice.
