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.

Turn the case right side out. Now trim 1/2 inch off of the edges of the two underlayers of the flap.


Trim all but the top layer of the flap by 1/2 inch.

Wrap the top layer over them and pin. Whipstitch as shown, without going through to the outer layer.


Pin the top layer over the two trimmed layers and whipstitch it down.

Blanket-stitch across the opening to hold the edges together, and sew on a snap closure.


Finish the raw edges of the opening with a blanket stitch.

Sew on a snap for the closure. You could also use Velcro or a button.

Almost finished!
