Where Are My Glasses?

A felted kiss lock glasses case perfect for your readers, every day glasses, or your favorite shades

(174)
Difficulty: Easy

I have recently had to start wearing glasses. The cases sometimes take up a lot of room . . . or they do not close and so out fall the glasses into whatever bag I am carrying. Consequently, I set out to solve this problem by designing a glasses case. I love it. This little felted bag has a kisslock frame to keep the glasses where you put them. And it is simple enough that you can fancy it up in any way your heart desires: decorate with flowers, bling it up with sparkle rivets, put one of our benevolent alien skulls right in the middle for a one-of-a-kind statement.

Now that I have carried my glasses around in these cases for a while, I am realizing how great the case is for pencils, my favorite fountain pen, the every day pens I use in multiple colors. A friend says it's perfect for her epi pen. She has a special pocket in her purse for easy access. 

A great gift for glasses-wearing friends, or those who only wear cool shades, for the school-going person who wants to carry pens and pencils in something other than those not so great looking pouches you find at the office supply store. Have fun with these: pink for readers, blue for shades, red for pencils and pens . . .

    I am delighted to let you know that Stonehedge Fiber Mill will continue to sell their gorgeous 100% USA-Made Merino to Noni! We began our businesses at almost the same time and became connected way back in 2008. Nonibags are best made with this yarn. I am excited about the ways that Stonehedge Fiber Mill is evolving and moving toward hand-dyeing. It's so exciting! More to come as they introduce new future colors and products!
