Visor Sock

Yes, you can use a sock - or you can challenge yourself....

The hardest part is winding/installing the bobbin. The rest was cake.

Cut your frabric in a rectangle 3/4" wider and 3" longer than your shield(measured as though it were flat). After you sew the 3 sides of the rectangle turn it right side out and fold the extra 2-3 inches over and sew just the short sides of that flap. This will form a little retention flap to keep the shield from sliding out.

Technically this one was supposed to be a test before I cut into the felt I have left over from a fiberglass project but this one turned out quite useable. I think the point of diminishing returns has been reached.

Sweet sewing skills. We had a discount motorcycle accessory store around here last year that would give you those and helmet bags with pretty much any purchase.

Which one did you get and how are you liking it so far? I'll post a new thread reviewing it after 18 months of ownership.

I'm just trying to keep my brain engaged. Like many people I am easily bored unless I take active measures to prevent it.

I recently bought "Proficient Motorcycling" and "More Proficient Motorcycling" off of Amazon. Those should hold me over for a few weeks once I crack them open.

I slid right past that years.

Nice visor sock. They sure don't make sewing machines like they used to.

Yeah, it's the cheapo model. I told the wife she had to prove her worth and then we could upgrade....

You see the results.

My mom could sew with the best of them. She made most of her wardrobe back in the day. It's quickly becoming a lost art.

I think the auto bagger & conveyor would have been great for the first 3 sides of my project - possibly overkill though.
