My boy Pablo just got new glasses! He’s been wearing glasses for nearsightedness for a couple of years now, and this is only his second pair – the first pair was kind of a mess! Super scratched up, with chewed up earpieces. He was way overdue for a new pair! We ended up getting him some darling Ray Ban frames, which I absolutely love on him. He’s such a handsome boy. Anyway, I needed a case for him that he would actually USE – something easy to just slip his frames into, that he’d be able to spot easily on his desk. So I whipped him up this case out of felt and canvas in about five minutes the other day!
I started by tearing out a strip of canvas and then using my Tulip Fabric Markers to add his name (this is actually his video game handle, haha!) and some cute details.
Then I just grabbed some felt and sewed a little hem on one end with a zig-zag stitch to create a nice finished end. After I did that, I just used his glasses as a guide for how big I needed to make the sleeve. Pretty easy.
Once I knew about how big I was going to make it, I stitched my canvas piece into place. Then I folded the felt and sewed it inside out so my folded hem edge would be on the outside. Turned the whole thing right side out and voila! Cute little glasses case, in less time than it took me to write this post.
Now he wants me to make him a case for his tablet. I’ll probably do something similar but with a velcro strap to hold it inside. These little projects I love, because you can just whip something up in no time at all but it looks like an actual THING, you know? Yay for sewing machines.
Now you go make one! Check out these other great projects too, and enter this fun giveaway!
