I have been wanting an eyeglass case for my sunglasses and since I did not have a pattern I created my own using the case that holds my reading glasses as a guide.I began by placing the sunglasses on a piece of muslin and folding over the fabric to get an idea of how much fabric was needed.
Once the size was determined I cut my square slightly larger.
This square was then used as a pattern to cut my printed fabric;
And the quilt batting.
The muslin goes on the bottom and will become the inside of the eyeglass case; the batting is second and used for padding; and the printed fabric goes on top for the outside of the eyeglass case. These three layer are then pinned together.
Using my walking foot I stitched vertical lines through all three layers.
Once the quilting was finished I then trimmed the outer edges.
I wanted to add the little dip at the top of the eyeglass case so I folded my square in half and snipped off one corner and then curved the other corner.
For my binding I found a red fabric with small white polka dots. This fabric was cut into a 2-inch strip;
And then folded, pinned and pressed.
The hardest part of the eyeglass case was maneuvering the binding around the curve and catching the two layers of the folded edge together; go slow and be sure to keep your needle in the down position.
