We Are SEW Lucky We Can Sew!

Aren't we lucky we can sew? If we need something special, we can design it, and whip it right up! And that's what I did here.....let's see if you can guess what this might be? Hmmmm...well it's some kind of lumpy thing...and there's a button and loop closure...

Ahhh, it opens up! Looks like there are three pockets...and a zipper across the top. What could it hold?
Flip side - there's the button - actually two buttons, stacked. And they are vintage - how cute is that! What is the fabric? It looks like...a map of a neighborhood...how odd??? But there's also Ric-Rac - we LOVE Ric-Rac!
OIC! The things that were making it lumpy are GPS parts! The screen thingie, the holder thingie, and the cable thingie that goes in the lighter thingie! Well, now that makes sense - keeps it from getting scratched, and fits nicely in the car center console when not in use.
And look - inside are some polka dots - don't we LOVE polka dots? Of course, I'm not sure "The Dominator" feels so masculine with the polka dots, but he'll get over it. That's what I named my GPS - "The Dominator" - he's kinda bossy, but I really do love him! He gets me where I need to go :-)
When I took my road trip to California last fall and mentioned I was taking a GPS, my wonderful friend, Aunt Pitty Pat, who is with law enforcement, wisely told me that you should NEVER leave your GPS in plain view, unattended. Thieves like to steal them, AND they could use the data in the GPS to find your home and rob you. So I make sure I always remove it from the windshield and take it with me, or stow it in my console or trunk. This little GPS stash makes that a lot easier, and much more fun!
