Glasses Case

My first glasses case.
A few months ago, I stumbled upon some lovely eyeglasses cases on a blog.  For weeks and weeks, I itched to make one.  However, I made that little rule.  The one that required I complete two unfinished projects prior to beginning a new one.  That did not stop me from bookmarking a couple of on-line tutorials though.

For someone annoyingly rule oriented, I certainly found a way around the rule limiting new projects!  My nephew has a birthday coming up and he loves to wear sunglasses.  (Gifts are different, right?!)  I decided to make him an Oregon State University themed sunglasses case, as he is a big Beavers fan. 

Of the many tutorials I found on-line, I decided to go with the one I found at Skip to My Lou.  I already had everything I needed to make the case.  However, after I began the project, I discovered I was the only one in my family that did not know my nephew had recently decided to root for the Ducks at U of O.  Oops!  Thankfully, a quick call to his mom assured me that he still like the Beavers, too.  Whew!  (And if it turns out he does not like the case, I can always pick up some Duck fabric.  If nothing else, the reaction of my family of Beaver fans would be quite entertaining.)

Tomorrow, we will see my nephew and see what he thinks.  (The other side has his nick-name on it; so, it has a personal touch, too.)

Thank you for visiting!
