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.

5. Now the fun part: Cut open the appliqués. Using a small, sharp scissors, cut around each shape, 1/8 inch inside of the stitching, through only the top layer.


Carefully cut out the center of each shape through the top layer only.

Then, on a few shapes, cut again through the second layer, 1/8 inch in from the first cut, to expose the third. Fancy!


The completed case.

Now your glasses are protected and you'll always be proud to pull them out of your bag in their new case. Since it's nice and compact, this project is ideal for taking on the road, especially if you cut out the pieces in advance. Makes a great gift, too!
