Quick Christmas Gift {with some shameless self promotion…}

2013 December 13

I made another Sunny Glasses Case a while ago with the most perfect fabric ever. It’s the Geekly Glasses line by Riley Blake Designs (from Double Decker Fabric). When Dorienne sent me this fabric I knew it needed to be a glasses case and I love how it turned out!

These glasses cases are about a 2 hour project – if that – and they work for anyone on your Christmas shopping list – Man, woman or child! Everyone that’s seen mine has said “You made that?!” Which is the universally known in sewing circles as meaning: “That doesn’t look handmade!” and/or ”Can you make me one?!” If that is not convincing enough I’m not sure what is – ha!

Warning: If you decide to make one of these when you’ve gotten together with some friends – say at a monthly sewing night – make sure you cut your fabric the right way up! I was so mad when I realized that I cut my amazing deer fabric upside down…. argh! But, it happens – and it still holds my glasses safe and sound – and I’m not making another one, at least not right now! You can even sneak a peek of the case in the Mini Tote giveaway post from Monday – did you spot it?

I’m running to get my Christmas sewing wrapped up (hee hee!) and my wonderful husband is taking care of the kids tomorrow so I can have all day to sew – HOORAY! I’m hoping to finish before next week. But, I usually over-plan, so at least I will have next week to finish everything up! How is your holiday sewing going? What are you making? Really… I’m a super curious person!

Don’t forget to throw your two cents in for “Sewing Survey Saturday” – check out last week’s results and a new survey tomorrow!

    This fabric is great for a glass case! The case is very cute. I’ve just finished a blouse for my son (finaly) and now I want to make pullover (is it the right word?: a shirt with no sleeves) for over the blouse. I don’t know if I can make it before Christmas. I just finished the pattern and first I want to make a prototype ;) . I’m curious for your holliday sewing… Good luck with that!

    I did the same thing when I made the first directional one. I was annoyed with myself too LOL. BUT I love these I even have one with a spool of thread, hand quilting needles (held in to the inside like pins) a thimble and clippers. My own little portable sewing kit. Thank you again for the pattern

      Oh no! I’m so glad to know you use it all the time! Hooray! What a good idea to make it into a sewing kit… I will have to do that with one of the prototypes :)

    It looks super! I am sure the deers were supposed to be up side down. They can see better that way ;) I am frantically finishing off my last custom order for this year and also sewing as many cute little dresses as I can! I still have one more market this year, and I sold out at the last one (what a glorious issue to have I must say!)… I just need to be able to fit 2-3 week’s worth of work in 6 days and I will be fine :) hehe Merry Christmas!

      Wow… sounds busy! Hooray that you sold out – that’s amazing! I’ll add some extra hours into the days for you and me both! :)

    What perfect fabric for this project.

      Thanks Dorienne! I LOVE it! :) I’m going to have to make more.

    That deer fabric is amazing! Where did you get it?
    I am making some clever quote tote bags for my sisters, and a few other non-sewing projects for other members of my family.
