A friend of mine has bought the recommended thread for the competition embroidery for me, but I thought I'd make a glasses case as I originally planned, for practice. I'm sure there's always a home for a pretty glasses case!
One thing I like about keeping a blog is that I can look back to find links I need. I looked up the link to the tutorial I used for the peg bag.
This one was a bit trickier than the peg bag because the top is so small. I think next time I'll do the top stitching at the top by hand rather than machine. It was hard to keep it neat.
That is a pretty eyeglass case! Sometimes hand stitching is the easier way to go, although a bit time consuming.ReplyDelete
I love your glasses case. I wish I needed one but I have to put my specs on first thing in the morning before I get out of bed and they stay there all day!!!ReplyDelete
I don’t need one either because I don’t wear glasses!Delete
Love your glasses case. Mine are stored in an ordinary shop bought hard case, still it does protect my reading glasses when they rattle about in my handbag.ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous case! I see what you mean about the top stitching but only for a competition, not for real life. It's gorgeous all around, my glasses are envious!ReplyDelete
I agree, I wouldn’t fuss if it wasn’t for competition.Delete
Very pretty! :)ReplyDelete
Lovely ! Wondering whether a line of green stitches around the opening would look good -- kind of highlight the work further, giving it a finish?ReplyDelete
Lovely embroidery - such a pretty eyeglass case! I dislike hand-stitching usually, so I choose decorative machine stitching at times. Not practical for competition though!ReplyDelete
Lovely embroidery and great glass caseReplyDelete
