Easy Peasy Eyeglass Cases

My Dad requested these a few weeks ago and has been patiently waiting for me to find myself in between projects so that I could make them for him!

Photo tutorial below...happy Monday!

These squares are about 7.5" X 8"...and I just guessed on the backing fabric - I used a soft pre-washed orange flannel.

Quilt as desired and trim away excess.

Fold in half (shortest side), pin.

Sew at 1/4", pivot at corner.  Be sure to leave one end open!

Now you have this -

Turn inside may need a tool for this...

Pin to prevent shifting, sew seams again to enclose them, just past 1/4" so you completely encase the seam.

Trim corners, stitch to prevent raw edge from fraying with use.  You may want to neaten up those tails more than I did!  I just clipped them really quickly with thread cutter on my machine...not very pretty!  :)

Turn again.  :)

Ta- dah!  :)  Cute!  Finish with binding scraps or serge and turn down raw edge.
