No Sew Eyeglasses Case: Good Living Magazine Project #1

 
 I am so excited to share this easy peasy tutorial!  
I have gone back and forth on when to post these projects but the magazine I craft for has been a bit ambiguous on their actual print date but the article and three crafts I made direct back to this blog for the tutorials in the march archives.  And they are more geared towards Easter and Mother's Day so sorry if this is kind of early. But having finished tutorial posts just sitting there waiting to be published is hard!

So here is Project #1:
 This is actually a spin off  of a craft I did last year around this time.  
You might  remember this one below...

An eyeglasses case made from a potholder!
I did the two versions you see above where only light sewing was required. But this time I came up with one that is perfect for the non sewer who still likes the fun concept of this crazy EASY project.  And I was blown away when I did it and it took me only FIVE MINUTES!
 Let's go!

Materials Needed: Potholder, Fabritac (or other fabric glue), clothespins


Wow. I am still blown away by this project and I am so happy that I could offer another version of it.
Happy Crafting Friends!

  12. I love this idea.

    I think you should do a little "best of" post on your blog for people like me that have only been following you for a relatively short period of time. You have AMAZING ideas and I'm sure that I missed TONS. Some afternoon I will have to go back and dig into your archives. :)

  16. If you leave the loop on you can hook it to a lanyard around your neck!

  17. I've made lots of these, however I did sew them and left the hang tag on them in case someone wants to hook it to something, like a little knob in the car, etc.

  18. This is the best idea I've seen in a long time! Potholders come in endless patterns and colors and are easy to work with. I might sew some, and glue some. See which holds best in the long run. Or if my ancient machine will even sew a potholder doubled!

  19. Loved it. I am an avid eye glass wearer and this project gave me easy access to my glasses at all times. I have made dozens since being introduced to this project.

  20. I've been making these for years to sell at Craft Sale. Did not know there was a tutorial for it. I also left the hang tag on them...... very popular.
