Eyeglass Case

Ok, so I am fully aware of the fact that I need to buy new fabric. These are getting old, but they are cute enough for practicing new things just in case something happens to unexpectedly turn out awesome. This eyeglass case, however, did not. This was a huge pain in the butt to make because I was following a tutorial for a basic reversible case (without a flap and without batting) and it was just impossible for my brain to understand the logistics of some of the things I wanted to do. I could have just done the same thing I did with the clutch, but I wasn’t happy with the stitching of that. In addition, I wanted to add a flap top which I had to make beforehand, size to the width I guessed the case would be after glasses in it, and incorporate it into the sewing of the case. I think that’s the hardest part about sewing, you often need to be logic-minded and a good problem solver to figure things out on your own or to create new things. It’s tough, but that’s my favorite part about it. Even though I get frustrated sitting there looking at the 4 pieces of fabric and batting on my lap, after about 20 minutes of staring at it with high blood pressure, I calm myself down and decide to actually solve it. It’s fun. I like puzzles. For some reason, even though I can follow directions for something complicated (or rather, complicated for me but probably not for the rest of the world), it is still not enough brainwork for me and I always feel the need to add something else to it. In this case it was the flap top and the hand stitched flower cut out with the other fabric peeking through. I also want to thank Jen for the cute wrap button idea. I didn’t have any good string for it, but I had this laying around the house, so I used that.

Don’t ask me to make you one. Please, I’m begging you!
