i was out shopping and fell in love with these (ridiculously) huge sunglasses.
they remind me of ones my grandma wore, so i had to get them. 
they didn't come with any case, so i made a cozy.
 
here's the entire thing.  it's a simple sleeve.
i lined it in blue fabric and then it closes with a snap. 
it's embellished with an embroidered and appliqued matryoshka doll since i'm mostly russian.

 

 
closeup of the doll.
i also stuffed her a little bit so she's more 'plush'.

 

 
and here are the glasses with their cozy.
 

 
anyway, i hope you all like it.

thanks for the nice comments.

and she wasn't too hard to put on.  it just took a while.  i braided together different greens for the plant stems.  and the 'apron' fabric was really thick, so it was hard stitching through it.  other than that, it was a nice thing to do while on breaks at work.
