The winner of this month's Un-Tutorials challenge was clear to me on Day 1.
Almost everybody was voting for the car organizer! I totally understand why, we all want a more organized car. I do, anyway. :)
I did get one email from a reader who was concerned that extra weight pulling on the gear stick would cause extra wear and tear or even damage to the gear box. Her mechanic saw a purse hanging around her gear stick and made comments to that effect. This email made me think about maybe nixing this project, but on the other hand, we all want a more organized car!
Then I noticed that in the picture the bottom of the car organizer is resting on the floor, and the hanging strap really just serves to keep it upright, not to hold it's weight. So that is my plan for this project. I'll sew the hanging strap long enough so that the bottom of the organizer is resting on the floor.
I love the extra pockets on the front to hold a phone and sunglasses... I hate searching for things while I'm driving! How many pockets do you think it should have? Tell me in the comments. :)
Be sure to check back next Wednesday when I reveal my car organizer knock off... and the tutorial will be posted a week after that. :)
Happy sewing and pinning!
