Tutorial: Felt Glasses Case


For Father’s Day, I dispensed with the usual tie-and-card routine, and made monogrammed glasses cases for my dad and step-dad instead.

Supplies:
* 7½” x 7½” square of thick felt
* 7½” x 7½” square of cotton flannel
* Sewing thread
* Embroidered squares/designs for applique (optional)

Tools:
* Sewing machine (or hand sew)
* Straight pins

1. Pin the felt square and the flannel square together at one edge.

2. Stitch along the pinned edge.

3. Fold pieces of fabric together with opposite sides facing, covering the unfinished edge created in step 2. Sew along the edge as close to the fold as possible, finishing the seam.

4. Position and sew any appliques in place through just the felt layer. Stitch through tissue paper or newspaper to make it easier to sew felt on a machine. Tear the paper away when finished.

5. Fold the fabric squares in half and pin around the unfinished edges.

6. Sew around the unfinished edges. Trim as needed to make neat, straight sides.

  1. Tiny grey jumpers for all the kitties (or trousers if the prefer something more manly)?  Goat coats?  (Can you tell I'm stuck on animal uniforms?)  We could make them all form a chorale group…
