Introduction: Eye Glasses Case Tutorial
Make yourself an glasses case to protect your specs!
9″ by 9" piece of fabric. (I used embroidered linen.)
Needle, thread, pins.
Step 1: Pin and Quilt the Outer Fabric
Step 1: Pin the outer fabric and the cotton batting together. Sew the two layers together, using vertical lines spaced about 1 inch apart.
Step 2: Trim the Outer Fabric
Step 2: Use a rotary cutter and ruler to square up the fabric. Trim the edges so that the finished piece measures 8.5" by 8.5".
Step 3: Fold and Sew
Step 3: Fold the outer layer in half, right sides together. Pin, and sew along the long side and 1 short side, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Step 4: Turn Right Side Out
Step 4: Turn the fabric right side out. Use a long, blunt object (like knitting needles) to poke out the corners.
Step 5: Fold and Sew Lining Fabric
Step 5: Time for the lining. Fold the lining fabric in half, right sides together. Sew along the long side, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Sew along 1 short side, but leave a small opening. (about two fingers worth)
Step 6: Pin Them Together
Pin the two pieces together and stitch around the opening.
Step 7: Pull It Through
Step 7: Pull the outer piece out through the opening in short side of the lining fabric. Don’t tuck the lining in just yet.
Step 8: Stitch the Lining Closed
Step 8: Hand stitch (or let's be honest, machine stitch) the opening in the lining fabric closed.
Step 9: Tuck in the Lining
Step 10: Tuck the lining in, again using a long blunt object to poke out the corners.
Ta da! You did it.
