This past weekend we went to Palm Springs and my sun glasses just lay freely in my bag - banging about - so with plans for summer outings in the works I figured I better get a case for my glasses - quick or I am sure I'll be shelling out lots for new glasses with the scratches and dings left on my shades...enter my "CRAFTINESS" lightbulb moment:
Quick 3 step sunglass case
Supplies needed: Felt, ribbon and embellishments
(1)Cut a square piece of felt (when closed will cover your sunglasses) - once you have your square cut grab some ribbon and lay it out -
(2)once you figure out the look you want straight stitch it on to the felt.
(3)Next turn the felt right sides facing each other and sew up the 2 sides - then turn inside out
The three steps are done but once you have a turned the case right side out you COULD add your embellishments - I added what I thought were hand sewn & cut feathers but my daughter said they look like leaves - oh well.
At least it looks good on.
I am super thrilled with my new sunglass case and so are my sunglasses - no more roughin' it and banging away in my purse...
I hope you have a chance to make one to suit your fancy.
I am linking this up to the following parties:
