Don't judge me by my glasses hoard. At least they're organized! I've been mulling over this idea for a while now since I have a lot of glasses. Years ago I'd pay $300+ for a pair of glasses and wear them until they fell apart but now you can get them online for way cheaper, so I get lots. They were starting to pile up in my bedside drawer, on counter tops, etc. so today I resolved to make this handy glasses holder and hang it next to my closet for easy access.
Step 1: It only took about an hour to make. Here's how I did it:
First, I cut a rectangle of soft brown corduroy 14 inches wide by 30 inches long.
Then I folded it in half lengthwise and stitched up the side.
Next, I ironed it flat with the seam in the middle and inserted a vintage necktie with the front of the tie facing the seam and then I stitched the bottom closed securing the tie in place.
Then I turned it right side out, gathered the tie in increments, and straight stitched it to the corduroy. Later, I went over the straight stitches with machine embroidery stitches because I thought it looked better.
