All my life I’ve had perfect vision. It was only recently that I started needing reading glasses. And it’s quickly progressed to stronger lenses and completely relying on them.
I have a pair in every room in the house because I’m not the type to wear a little dangly chain around my neck for my glasses. But for some reason, I’m always misplacing the eye glass cases. I lost my last one during my recent travels. I’m sure it fell out somewhere at the airport while I was fumbling for my boarding pass or at a restaurant while trying to read a menu.
When I got back, I made a mental note to go buy a new case. Then I thought, duh, I’ll just make one. My first thought was to sew one, but why bust out the sewing machine when there’s glue…
To make a quick and easy no-sew eye glass you’ll need:
- Paper towel tube or wrapping paper tube
- Craft Glue
- Cut your tube to the desired length to fit your glasses.
- Cut open your tube down the long side
- Glue your fabric to the outside of the tube and tuck in all edges gluing them to the inside.
- Use a small line of glue to the inside edges and secure with binder clips.
- Let dry.
This is much prettier than those silly cases they sell at the drugstore. The cardboard tube adds just the right amount of stiffness so the case will stay upright in your purse.
Plus, I love this fabric. It was in the remnant bin and I’ve been eager to use it on a project.
This is great way to use up a small piece of fabric and very budget-friendly. Add a monogram or other embellishments to make a nice gift.
Thanks for visiting.
