Well I took my first stab at making a couple glasses cases.  Overall they will work but I need to work on the sizes and figure out how to get the fabric on the inside of the envelope style one to not be rippled inside.  Let me know what you think and if you know of any links to some good tutes that will help me out.  I just kinda winged it by placing my glasses on some paper and sketching a pattern out.  Thanks for looking.

hi, pretty fabric, i thought this link to a pattern  might be of use to you since you were asking for turorials , it's super easy to make, i just missed out the piping, and it worked fine, i found it a good pattern to help with the technique of making envelope style purses, and if you made yours with no pattern you will easily be able to adapt it to suit you!! hope this helps  Cheesy

Thank you for the link.  I was making them for a friend at work who wanted one but didn't know what style she wanted.  She ended up taking the basic sleeve one but I've got 3 others to make with my cut out fabric for the envelope style one so this will help.  Thanks again.  Oh and the fabric I've had in my stash and just didn't know where to use it...was afraid to use it on anything because it's so pretty.  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Whoa, coincidence, I was just making a glasses case tonight with some leftover fabric. I really like yours though. Is that batik?

No it's not batik but it reminded me of it when I bought it.  I love the beauty of batik though.  Still working on these to make them not wrinkle & pucker.  I love how quick they were to make and my friend I made one for loves it!! Smiley
