Use up some fabric scraps to make this cute, appliquéd eyglass holder.
You probably have everything you need to make one of these.
Use your glasses as a guide for how big to cut.

1. Cut the first piece. Fold one of the scraps and lay your glasses on it as shown.


Use your glasses as a guide for how big to cut.

Cut a rectangle about 2 inches wider and twice as long, plus extra for the flap. Use this piece as your pattern for cutting out the other two.


Once you've cut the first piece, cut two more the same.

Stack the three layers with the one you want for the outer case on top, and the second and third layers underneath.


Stack them with the outer layer on top.

Pin them together around the edges as well as in the center.
