Spectacle case – how I did this

Standard

Mum wanted a new spectacle case. I bought a sunglasses case from a well-known discount clothes store, and then covered it with my choice of fabric, in this case a reasonably hard-wearing corded upholstery fabric. Make a case, slightly larger than the original case. Turn right side out. Cut to shape at the clasp end of the case, allowing enough fabric to make a small hem.Stitch as close as possible to the clasp. To neaten it, and to add additional decoration, I used Hot Fix stones, and applied them along where I had hemmed at the top, and to make an initial. Obviously you can do whatever decoration takes your fancy!
