Instructables
Making a CD visor for your car out of fairly inexpensive materials.

Current on market CD visors had one major problem. They were BORING. Solid black, no personality so i set out to make my own version.

It's also an entry into the SewUseful contest. View it on Etsy here.

Step 1: Materials

1/6 yard (6inches) o Peltex stabilizer. (Or the stiffest stabilizer you can find)
1/2 yard of fabric of your choice. (This is the fun part of the project- GO WILD!)
1 package of extra wide double fold bias tape
1/3 yard of double sided iron-on adhesive (e.g. Heat N Bond)
double sided "fashion trim Velcro"
measuring tape or ruler
scissors
thread
sewing machine
iron
pen

Step 2: Cutting the material

Cut and measure a rectangle out of the Peltex, 2 rectangles out of the iron-on adhesive and 2 rectangles out of your fabric that are 13 inches by 6 inches. Put aside.

Cut 2 strips of Velcro each 18 inches.

Cut 6 rectangles out of your fabric that are 10 inches by 6 inches.

Stack the 6X10 rectangles of fabric on top of each other making sure all pieces of fabric are right sides up.

Measure one long side and mark at 4 1/2 inches. Measure and mark the other long side at 5 1/2 inches long. Connect these 2 marks and cut along your mark.

You should now have
2 strips of double sided Velcro, 18 inches in length
2 fabric rectangles that are 6"X13"
1 Peltex rectangle that is 6"X13"
12 fabric trapezoids that measure 6" wide and 4 1/2" high on one side and 5 1/2" high on the other side.

Step 3: Hemming the pockets.

With one of your trapezoid shaped piece of fabric. Fold the diagonal edge over 1/4" and again 1/4" making 3 layers of fabric in the "hem area." Press with your finger.

Sew along this fold 1/4" from the outside fold. Trim any thread and fabric that sticks out.

Repeat this process for the remaining 11 pockets.

Just finished mine :) I didn't bind it (Because I'm scared to!) but instead sewed the seams inside out and turned it, and it worked out fine- not quite as snazzy but still good! What would be nice is if you could bias bind the pockets too :) Thanks a lot!
