Felt Sunglasses Case

By Liz Barraclough

Sew a colourful Felt Sunglasses Case to keep your glasses safe and easy to find! Designer Liz Barraclough chose 3mm thick felt in vivid tropical shades for the simple pattern pieces. As well as protecting the lenses, the felt will not fray and is a pleasure to stitch into without the need for an embroidery hoop. The pattern includes schematic and instructions for embroidering Liz’s palm tree and cute itsy bitsy bikini motifs with stranded cotton. Or, for a super quick embellishment, you could easily customize your case with a ready-made iron-on patch! Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat is a lovely yarn to stitch with and is used to sew the three pattern pieces together. This also gives crocheters the option to add a decorative border and hands-free strap.
