It had to be done, my sun-visor has been broken for a while now. Normally I would remove the fabric and re cover. I've done this refurb four or five times now, saving on the cost of buying a new one. This time there was an internal problem, but the outer covering was still ok and would last a while longer.
I unpicked the stitches across the front of the peak and removed the insides. Maybe I could stick this together, but maybe it wouldn't hold for very long. It needs a new one.
I made a template from a cereal box, and used this to cut a new shape out of the lid of a plastic box of chocolates.
Slot in the new one in between the layers of fabric, and stitch up the opening in matching thread with tiny stitches. There you go. This feels comfortable, a shame to throw it away. It lives just inside the front door, and it's the last thing I reach for before I go out. I don't like the sun in my eyes, it makes me squint. I don't have prescription sunglasses, don't want to pay extra for reactolight lenses, and hate those that clip over your normal specs, so this suits me fine.
I've got a few blog posts in the pipeline now. The big black arty thing has a name, Hidden Treasure. It went off in another direction and it's growing on me, soon to be revealed. I had a good idea to turn my car into a camper, and some nice photo's from the walk yesterday. I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, like the walking challenge miles. I think this increase in busyness is because I am bypassing the news. It's giving me more time to be creative. Try it, refuse to be drawn in, and find something else to do.
I think we have some sunny days on the horizon. Tatty byes, ilona
