hey there everyone! i've been sewing like a crazy woman lately and i just wanted to show off my most recent creations. they're pretty basic, but i love them!

organizers: these are for keeping up with those smaller pieces of paper that end up cluttering your purse, or shoved in your pockets. great for receipts, fortune cookie fortunes, ticket stubs - you know, paper that you don't want to lose!

eyeglass cases: self explanitory! not as protective as a hard case, but not sitting on your glasses is a good habit to get into anyway. these are best for fending away dust/dirt, the annoying stuff that you don't want on your glasses.

not too pleased with the inner vs. outer color combo - i was just antsy to use this pink vinyl  Lips sealed

see, its painted on both sides!

yay, eyeglass cases, or cozies if you prefer

a good medium size to fit most eye/sun glasses

Q. & A. (so you don't have to search for answers!)

love! where do you get your vinyl?

black vinyl: joann's (upholstery section)
pink vinyl: joann's (in the value flat folds)
sky blue vinyl: from a local upholstery shop that is now out of business Sad

ok, that's all for now, so until next time:

today i got my first eye glasses ever, and they came this very ugly case.  now either i'll get some paint and try to make-over it or else i'll just have to find some time in between studying and writing assignment to hop to the store for some fabric and try to sew something decent (i'm a total beginner, i just spent my childhood looking at my mum and aunt sewing, but i get cold sweats when i have to cut and sew fabric).  Thank you for the inspiration Smiley
