Eye Glasses Case

I have been planning on making a case for my glasses for a long time now. Actually ever since I spent $600.00 for them and they tried to give me a plain black case. I asked if I could please have something with a little color and they handed me a big honkin' orange one.  Now orange is not my favorite color and I'm not a demanding person so I took it, but when I tried to put it my purse, it was so big it wouldn't fit.  That is when I decided to make my own.  That was two years ago. Yes, that's about how long it takes me to get things done.

Yes, I know I said I don't like orange, but when you put it with my favorite color, purple, I like it a lot more. This one I made a little big since I am going to use it for my sun glasses and they are on the bigger side.  Now I need to make another one and make it a little smaller for my regular glasses that are usually only worn for just for reading, so I do need a case for my purse.
They are so simple to make I don't know why I didn't get it finished sooner.  You don't need a pattern, just a pair of glasses so you can cut your wool felt to size. Then just add whatever you like to the front, button hole stitch around the edges and waalaa, your done.

This is gorgeous!! They would make great gifts - you could personalise them with the name of the person you give them to. Hark at me, giving you advice - LOL! As if you haven't already thought of that!
