Today I made eye glass cases. I had a big piece of material, the kind that is already quilted. I'd made a nice little tote bag (small size) for DMom years and years ago and had this piece left. It was cream color with burnt orange wee flowers all over and the other side is burnt orange with cream wee flowers.
Wanted one for my glasses in the family room. Showed DH after I made the first one. Did he want one for his pair at his end table? Yes! And how about for my 3 trucks where I keep reading glasses? Ok I can do that, how about for the pair you keep at the kitchen table? YES! Silly me, I thought he wouldn't care about using something like this. He always just threw his glasses down wherever he was...
So I made those. Then one for my desk, one for the computer room, one for my purse, one for my sunglasses, one for my bedroom, one for the snack bar where I sort mail... then DH says what about mine at my desk back by the computer? Ok made that last one.
12 made! I should go into production!
Embellished one with ribbon. Some I seamed on the outside with bias tape to cover seams. Some I put contrasting fabric flap at the top; some I seamed up the sides, some just on one side. They're not all perfect but I think they're pretty.
