Sun Visor

I used an on-line hat pattern to create a very protective sun visor.  I could not get either link to work.  However, if you google 'SUNNY_SIDE_UP_SUNHAT'  you will easily find it.

I have lots of visors and hats.  NONE protect like this one.  I really struggled with the sewing part.  Down loaded the pattern on Monday.  Thought I would complete it in one day.  NOPE.  I had a lot of Life-interruptus + I found the binding on the curved edge a real challenge.  Took 3 tries to get it 'good enough'.  I used a very stiff iron on stabilizer for both the visor and the band.  Huge problem connecting the two pieces.  While it is far from perfect, I'm still very happy with the results.

This photo, as well as the one below, were done in front of the bathroom mirror so that I could show the 'hidden' view as well.

Compare Protection

Compare size with one of my many visors.  All the purchased ones are about the same size and protection.  The pink is the visor lining.
