Patchwork Glasses Case PDF Sewing Pattern
Sew two sizes of well padded patchwork pouches to use for your sunglasses, readers, or prescription eyeglasses using this PDF SEWING PATTERN.
These zip top pouches have 4 layers of fabric, batting and muslin total (2 on each side) to provide some protection for your glasses. The instructions show you what to do to make it possible to sew this many layers into a zipper pouch.
Instructions include the dimensions (Imperial and Metric) to cut the pieces for the patchwork and the layout to sew them together.
These zipper bags can also be made without the patchwork--simply skip steps #2 - #5 and prepare a piece of fabric for the front the same way the exterior back and lining pieces are made in step #6.
Directions for making a zip pull are not included, but instructions for a fabric zip pull can be found here, or use waxed hemp cord and a bead to make a pull (see this pin for info on how to tie a knot right next to the top of the bead).
Each size will hold glasses up to 5.75" wide x 2" high x 1.5" deep (146mm x 51mm x 38mm).
There are 7-pages of step-by-step text and color image instructions + 2-pages of pattern pieces.
