Furry Glasses Case

Don't worry a Keira post is coming soon. Just one more craft first. A furry glasses case. Of course, you could put anything you want in it, but the original title was eyeglasses case.

Isn't it cute? This one didn't come from Pinterest, oddly enough. It came from a magazine my mom had. I checked out the instructions and didn't care for them so I just made my own.

First measure out the size you want, adding extra for foldovers, say half an inch.

Cut. (Fairly obvious, that one.)

Decide on your interior color.

Cut your inside color so that it is just a bit smaller than the fur.

Determine where you want your eyes and sew them on. I also used a bit of hot glue to make the threads extra secure.

Sew on the top snap. Remember this is going to be folded over. Once again, I added a dab of hot glue. Glue the top half of your inside fabric to the fur. I used hot glue and smoothed it out as I went.  Fold over the top edge of the fur and glue down so that the snap is on the inside.

Sew on the other side of the snap so that when it's folded, it lines up.

Now glue down the remainder of your inside fabric. Fold up the bottom edge and glue.

Fold in the sides and glue

Fold up the bottom and glue both sides.

Voila! All done!
