Garmin Nuvi (Nav) Cover/Case

For Christmas, my super awesome fiancee bought me a navigational system. This was a very good thing because I couldn't find my way out of a paper bag with a map. North is always straight ahead and East is always to my right. This is problematic, because I almost always do the driving and we love to go on new adventures. I was so happy to receive my new Garmin Nuvi 200 because it helps me find my way in the car, but it also works on batteries and I can walk around with it..ingenious! I am also accident prone, which meant that I needed some kind of protective cover a.s.a.p. I went to the thrift store to find some fun piece of clothing to transform into a case and decided on an adorable baby vest. It was green and had fun travel graphics and lined with soft, fuzzy orange fleece; perfect. Unfortunately, my sewing machine was not co-operating (and yes, I took it back last night), so I ended up handsewing using some funky multi-colored green thread and a whip stitch. I also poked two little eyelets and used an old t-shrit scrap to tie a bow and hold the whole thing closed. Now, my nav looks as adventurous as me and it won't get scuffed up in my purse!

Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
