There’s More …….re eyeglass case project

On Friday 6th July, I posted the HOW TO make a very simple eye glass case using the fabric I decorated with JANOME SEWING MACHINE STITCHES.

Liz’s Eyeglass case

Life is full of wonderful little surprizes & co-incidences: a book just came across my desk: “SEW WHAT! BAGS” by lexi barnes. (Storey Publishing 2009). It is a rather nice spiral bound handbook with loads of Sewing Basics as well many different projects.

Imagine my surprize when I got to page 51: Eyeglasses case – Certainly caught my eye (excuse the pun) seeing as I made & blogged about this just a few days ago!   Lexie’s instructions are suitable for a beginner sewer and ,while it is not exactly the same as the way I made mine last week, it is perfect and has a flannel lining to prevent scratching the glasses –  a very nice touch.

She also has nice options like a button flap to close the case and ideas for making similar cases for disposable diapers; a knitting wristlet; a sandwich bag; a business card or cell phone case; and a rather cute lipbalm lanyard  -to make it might be like sewing for Barbie but the idea is certainly very novel.

OK…..now back to flipping through this fun & creative book.
