This would make a great gift for a new driver!
We recently switched our car insurance when we had to add our teenage son, so we could afford for him to be able to drive. While I was hunting through all the junk in the glove box for the old insurance, I decided it needed a special holder to make it easier to find and keep it from getting all wrinkled. The bonus, if I ever get pulled over, maybe I can distract the officer with my well presented paperwork (hey, a girl can hope!).
1 Fat quarter (cut 2-9 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ pieces and 2-2″ x 18″ strips)
1 piece timtex or other heavy weight interfacing 9 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
2 pieces clear vinyl 5 1/2″ x 4 “ (I used a clear viny tablecloth remnant)
1/2″ wide double fold bias tape
1 piece industrial strength velcro
Step one: Sew bias tape onto 5 1/2″ side of clear vinyl. Set aside.
Step 2: Sew the 18″ strips together on short end, iron seam open, then iron strip in half longways with wrong sides facing.
Step 3: Place one rectangle of fabric face down, place timtex on top, then place other rectangle fabric right side up. Position vinyl pockets on each end with binding towards the center. Using binder clamps, clamp all the layers together. Round corners using spool of thread as guide. DO NOT use pins–you put holes in the vinyl!
Step 4: Using folded strip, sew strip on side with pockets around the outside edge using 1/4″ seam.
Step 5: Flip binding to back side of holder, using binder clamps to hold into place.
Step 6: Sew binding in place.
Step 7: Sew a straight seam down the center for the fold and apply velcro.
All Finished! Insert registation and proof of insurance.
