I just got a cute new pair of sunglasses and would like to save this pair from the barage of scratches my sunglasses usually recieve from beating around in my purse.  Anyone have any suggestions as to how to go about this or what fabrics to use?  The obvious thing to do would be a little drawstring bag, but I want to make sure I use a fabric that doesn't scratch or lint up my glasses, and was also curious to see if there were any other cute ideas for sunglass cases- I guess I could do like a pouch with a snap down flap.  Any ideas?  Fabric suggestions?

365 days with no new clothes (not even for the kiddos!)... Can I do it?  Check out my blog- www.thethingswedoforourkids.blogspot.com

I made a pouch for my boyfriend's safety glasses out of flannelette (it has fishes and canoes on it!). I made it by taking the maximum length and the maximum circumference of the lenses and added 2 inches to each measurement (1 inch for ease plus another inch for half-inch seam allowances). I then cut out a rectangle to those measurements, folded and sewed the seam allowance at the open end, folded it in half and sewed it up. It closes with a button. I never posted it, actually...
