Specs Appeal!

Embroidered Glasses Case 


I'm pretty rushed off my feet at the moment with 'family stuff', so sewing and blogging seems to have taken a bit of a back seat but I did find time yesterday to whip up this cute glasses case.  It's part of a handbag set for a friend who's poorly, I shared the matching zipper pouch in my last post and I've also stitched up a little tissue holder although I forgot to take any pictures of that one!

The case is quite large so can also be used for holding statement sunnies
(If we actually get a summer worthy of wearing sunglasses this year!)  

 As ever, it's very much an upcycled project, using faux suede taken from an old sofa, a hair bobble for a closure and a vintage button from the 1950s!  Protection is provided by a layer of pure cotton wadding left over from a previous quilting project.

Happy Sewing!

  3. Love it. I might be able t make that myself!

  4. What a lovely idea Josie I bet this will really brighten up your friends day :)

  5. How stinking cute! Love it! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. A super wee project Josie. Quick projects are all I can fit in too, but they're just as satisfying. X

  7. That's so cute Josie, a brill way of using up leftover fabric. Take care Sharon x

  8. I love this Josie! Super idea - great vintage button too!
    Thank you for commenting on my blog. (Do you know you are a no-reply blogger?)
    I think you would love the QAL, although I can see from what you say you don't really have the time at the moment. I know you made a quilt recently but this is quite different. I am sure you would have plenty of "scraps" for quilting!
    I will probably be last to finish, as I am making very slow progress, never mind!
    Hope all the family and yourself are keeping well!
