Now my mom and I are similar in lots of ways: our passion for reading, our love of running, our affection for organizing. So this year (after seeing this terrific embroidered glasses case by wee folk art), I decided that a ruffle-y, felt-y glasses case might be just the ticket for holding my mama’s reading glasses.
Here are the simple directions to make one too:
– one piece of felt or wool felt
-15 squares of 2″x2″ chiffon
-18″ of ribbon
-thread and sewing machine1. Make four chiffon ruffles using the ruffle tutorial by katiedid.2. Gather the ruffles into a ‘flower’ and stitch onto a circular piece of felt. Set aside.
3. Sew a ribbon casing across the top of the piece of felt.4. Sew around two edges of the felt (don’t sew up the ribbon casing or you won’t be able to put a ribbon through it), making a ‘drawstring bag.’5. Thread a ribbon through the ribbon casing.6. Hot glue the flower ruffle onto the glass case. Give your mama (or someone else) a fabulous, ruffle-y, handmade glasses case for her birthday.
