Side windows shades

I have pull down screens on both the passenger and drivers side of my Daybreak to keep the sun out.

But the window above always let's in the bright morning sun. I tried several screens but none worked well so I decided to make a decorative shade.
I used the silver fold up car window screens first. I cut a pattern of the window and traced the shape, glued cardboard to, then fused the fabric to that with fusible material . I made it just larger than the window so I could wedge it in.
I also glued a strip of black molding in front of the shade on top of the lower windows, to hold it in place. I used a cute doggie pattern since I show and travel with dogs.
The strip is on top of the bottom windows and you can't tell it didn't come that way. I can remove the shade if I ever sell it.
Works great and what a difference in the sun and heat! So cute too.
Took me a few days and a few $$ but soo worth it!
Here's the finished shot over the drivers side.
