More sewing


Last weekend when we went to the rose festival there were some craft stalls and I always enjoy seeing what other crafters make.  There was a lady there who makes lots of machine sewn items and she had some glasses cases for sale.  I didn't like the material she had used, the machine stitching nor the slanted tops though they were perfectly made.  I thought I could make some prettier handsewn ones and here are the first three I made. I have a very boring grey felt one which came with my glasses and I do find it handy to slip in my handbag when I go to the hairdressers or on holiday. I have a lovely Gorjuss Girl hard case on my dressing table I use every day.

So I measured my felt one and cut some felt the same size. I then cut some pretty materials 1" bigger all round, turned in the edges and sewed them together. So they look pretty and have a practical felt lining to protect the glasses.  I have several more cut out and once I have a few more made one will be replacing my grey felt case.

Yours are so pretty. I bought one from a lady at a craft fair. The first time I wanted to use it I couldn't get my glasses right in it!! The lining was shorter than the outside!!! Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Carol S.xx
