Have had this pinned for a long time, so knew exactly what to do for this challenge. The site linked to the project is gone, so had to figure it out as I went along.

Now I am all set the next time I travel, should I need to sew something. Smiley

Ahhh, I love this idea! I've been using a little tin, but I may have to steal this. Cheesy

I have about 100 empty cases around the house! What a clever use for them. This would be the perfect thing to throw in a purse or luggage when traveling.

Very cute!  I have that project pinned as well...I like that you can identify what it is by the tape measure trim outside--clever!

Ooooh, I love this idea!  I have oodles of eyeglass cases in junk drawers.  No one here even wears glasses. Cheesy

Exactly what I was thinking as well. I have a bunch of cases since both my husband and I wear glasses, but we never use the cases because we are always wearing the glasses.

HSG I love the fabric that you chose, the flowers are dainty and cute. I also echo the sentiment that the measuring tape on the outside is a very clever idea that hints to what is inside.
I might have to steal this idea!  Grin
Well done!

Cute case!  And here I finally got rid of all the extra cases we had when we moved. Shoot.

Such great comments. Smiley

You could even make these for gifts, and fill them with other things needed when traveling. Toothbrush, Qtips, bandaids, dental floss, etc.

That fits more than I would have thought.  Those things are so sturdy.  Good job on the repurpose!

This is nifty!  I just can't bring myself to chuck out all those unused cases in my closet either.  Sewing/first aid kits for everyone Smiley
