How to Make a GPS Bean Bag Holder
in Less than One Hour
Many people have GPS devices in their car to help them with navigating the
They come with an adapter that attaches to the windshield of your car so you can
see the GPS's screen.
I personally don't like putting the device on my windshield because it obstructs
the view of traffic. So, I created a bean bag holder to put on your dashboard that will securely hold the GPS in a
place that is convenient for the driver.
I started with cutting a circle of a piece of scrap fabric. I used a small plate
as my stencil to make the circle.
With right sides together, I sewed a half-inch seam around the fabric leaving a
small opening to fill it.
Next, I filled the bag with dried beans that I happened to have in my pantry. It
reall doesn't matter what kind of beans. Any kind will work. It's important to not overfill the
bag. As you can see in this picture, I filled it just enough so that I can make an indentation with my
fingers. This is where the GPS will sit.
And now, you're able to have your GPS on the dashboard in a convenient place.
