… is all that matters here!

I took the square of felt I made at the open studio on Sunday and turned it into the most beautiful Technicolour Dream Felt Glasses Case I’ve made ever!  Well, I think so.

Instead of folding it with two creases to make a traditional case shape with flap, the pattern of the material suggested more of an ice cream cone shape.

Using a multi-shaded cotton thread in greens and aquas, I used a running stitch to sew it together.  First of all I secured the inner fold with ‘invisible’ sewing – I love felt as it is very forgiving and you can hide stitches in the thickness and multi-colouring. I didn’t sew all the way to the top of the case, but left about 2.5cm open so you can see the inner fold as well.  I reinforced the top stitch a few times so it’s strong enough for wear and tear… off and on, in and out … I use my specs a lot!

I continued the running stitch to the top of the front flap, and finished it off as a spiral, bringing the stitching together with the circles theme of the silk and wool inlays.

Now I can’t wait to go out and show it off!  (What a poser!)
