My latest Embroidery Design is a lot of fun to stitch out. I really like projects that are fast and that use up smaller pieces of materials or remnants. If you have fat quarters that you want to use up from seasonal times of year, this would be a great service project or stocking stuffer.
The entire design completes in one hooping. It also includes a ladies design with flowers and a men's design with more geometrical stitching.
You can either use cotton fabric and batting or fleece as long as it is not too thick. I also used multicolored or "Variegated" thread. It really makes the finished cases unique and simplifies the design so you don't have to change the thread out.
The Slim Eyeglass case finishes to 2 x 6 inches and uses a 5x7 Hoop
The Regular Case Finishes to 3 x 6 inches and uses a 6x10 Hoop
Here are both the Men's and Ladies's designs completed with Fleece fabric. Don't forget the kids also! They wear glasses and sunglasses. The Slim design would work great for those. If you have some leftover pieces of fabric, batting or fleece in your stash, these sew up quickly. You will just need your hoop, some wash away stabilizer and painters or masking tape.
When you download the size of your choice, also included is a full color design sheet showing all of the stops and an extra set of color instructions with step by step pictures that show fabric sizes and completion of the case. There is a neat little "trick" in the instructions that allows this to be sewn in ONE Hooping. Now that I have your interest, hop over to my store for the 5x7 design or the 6x10 design
I have been enjoying digitizing and testing these designs out. So much in fact that I need to make a trip to my local nursing home to drop off several of these cases. There is probably a need in your area also. Holidays are fast approaching. There is a quick You tube video showing the process for making these Eyeglass cases below. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
