This simple sewing project will make the perfect gift.
Finish Eyeglass Case: 3 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches
Use three strands of embroidery floss for all stitches unless otherwise stated.
Place rose wool lining piece on wrong side of appliqued body piece, aligning vertical edges; pin side edges together (Diagram 1). (Even though pieces are different sizes, once you fold the pieces in half, the extra wool will be taken up because of the wool's thickness.) Fold layered pieces nearly in half with the applique on top and about 1/2 inch of lining uncovered along right-hand side.
With variegated plum perle cotton, start in the bottom left-hand corner and blanket-stitch through all four layers along the bottom edge until you reach the bottom right-hand edge (Diagram 2). Catching only the top three layers (the dark plum front of case and two rose lining layers), continue stitching up to the upper right-hand corner. Catching only the top two layers, blanket-stitch over to the upper left-hand edge, then across the top edge and down the right-hand edge to complete the eyeglass case.
