Introduction: Left, Right - Directional Driving Aid (Funny Useful Gift)
Someone once complimented my driving skills, but the second after mentioned how terrible my sense of direction is. As the usual designated driver, I have to be more competent than my inebriated friends.
"LEFT, RIGHT, NO YOUR OTHER LEFT..." is something I usually hear and I've gotten used to being teased. I must add that I'm left handed, so I've always given the excuse that my left is MY RIGHT...and so on (JOKINGLY of course). So, I was thinking that I could find my own solution, and I came up with this nifty aid. I mean, directionally challenged can only be funny the first 4 times, then it really is a problem.
This is a way of me poking fun of the situation and solving the problem. I mean no offense to anyone and I hope you all find this as nifty as I do.

Step 1: Materials
You will need:
A piece of fabric larger than 6"x4"
Needle and Thread
White acrylic paint
Step 2: Measure and Cut
Measure 9 inches of fabric, to be cut in half.
The length of the fabric will be 6 by 5 1/2.
Cut the fabric to create two identical pieces.
Step 3: Fold, Font, and Draw
Fold the fabric along the shorter approximately an 1 1/4 from the sides. You will be left with 2 inches of fabric facing up in width and 6 inches in length. Pin this down to keep the fabric from losing it's shape.
Select your favorite font.
Draw on your fabric with a sharpie.
Step 4: Paint, Sew a Decorative Line, Add Velcro, and Hot Glue.
Carefully paint the sharpie drawings with acrylic paints. Decorate with splotches of paint...if you would like. Finally sew a decorative dashed line about 1/4" away from top side of the letter fabric edge. Sew a similar line approximately the same distance from the bottom edge of the letter.
Add a piece of velcro at the top, below the line.
Add velcro to the bottom of the front side.
Glue gun the edges in. And seal the back edge with a small strip of glue.
Step 5: Put on Your Steering Wheel.
Place the velcro in any fashion that works with your steering wheel.
GO OUT AND DRIVE!!!
