It's taken me quite a long time to complete this glasses case, mainly because (a) I'm pretty slow at sewing (and it's all hand-stitched), (b) I sew when I'm watching TV or in front of the fire and often find my eyes drift away from what I'm supposed to be doing and (c) I'm always ultra slow and careful when it comes to making something new, which this is, and I wanted to get it absolutely right because it's a present for my Mum.
I was hoping the second photo would show the inside, but lighting was obviously not bright enough. I've lined the case with a soft blue fleece, edged in a pretty pink ribbon so glasses shouldn't get scratched when being stored. Also, the little decoration on the front is also a pocket to hold some lint cloth for lense cleaning.
I'm so pleased with how it's turned out I'm going to make some to sell in my shop in the New Year. Watch this space!
