Here’s a collection of lovely cases to make that will help protect your glasses, they’re nice to give as homemade gifts too! These can be made with a variety of fabrics such as felt, linen, cotton prints, flannel and can be embellished with appliques, cute buttons, beads, ric rac and other trims (if you like). All but two are sewing tutorials (there’s one for crochet and one for knitting) and many include pattern or template downloads. Enjoy!
Hand-Stitched Felt: Hand stitched with pretty leaf applique (template download). Foldover flap with button closure.
Bobble Stitched: (crocheted) Measures approximately 18cm x 9cm but easy enough to adjust if needed.
Flex Frame: A nice feature of this one is that it squeezes open & shut.
Bright Stripes: (knitting) Choose a multicolor yarn to display the subtle texture of linen stitch. This is worked as one piece, which makes it a perfect project for a beginner.
Hexagon: Made with scraps for the hexagons, heavy weight fusible interfacing and lining. There is a template to download (jpg or doc files).
Wool: Use any soft material that’s thick enough to hold its shape and soft enough so there’s no chance of scratching your lenses.
Soft Felt & Flannel: Too cute! Appliqued bird design with the outer part in felt and lined with flannel, hand-sewn.
Running Stitch: (crochet) Made with two colors of bedspread weight cotton crochet thread, lined with flannel, button closure.
