A Rocking Dog Super Quick Sewing Project No2

The Project Components

So Tuesday brings another Rocking Dog Super Quick Sewing Project. I bought some great new pairs of reading glasses in TK Maxx, and needed some cases in the hope of prolonging their longevity. I have made cases before using fabric swatches, but this time I wanted to make neat lined numbers!

Today’s little project is therefore a LINED GLASSES CASE.

I hope the photo’s and accompanying black boards in this post give you a good idea of how to go about making your own cases. The reason for leaving a hole in the lining long seam is that all the raw seams will magically be concealed. Some of the stitching is pretty fiddly because of the size of the opening (Holding Stitches and Finishing Line Top Stitching). I certainly wouldn’t like to sew lined gloves!

The quantity of material needed will depend on the size of your glasses. Guesstimate by placing your glasses on some fabric and then fold to cover, add in a seam allowance and allow for any decorative cuff. Gingham and stripes are great to work with as they will give you straight lines for cutting. The outer fabric and lining fabric need to be cut to exactly the same size. If you make a snugly fitting case you will not need any fastening.

Sorry for brevity of instructions, I have a 5am start to pick up the Honeymooners from Heathrow, Aaaaaaahh love em! Back to reality lovebirds, all hands on deck in the lead up to Rio.

    Great tutorial…I need to make a few of these, wondering if you can buy those squeeze- snappy shut things to hold them safe? xx

    • Thanks for comment Eco Ethel.. hope all good with you and that you are feeling jolly creative this summer. Must admit hadn’t thought about those snappy shut things, but a good idea ! I do such a snug fitting case that there’s no danger of a fall out. I am so bad with glasses!!! x
