Quick DIY eyeglass holders

If you sew at all you probably have some small pieces of fleece in your stash of scraps. And if you have more than one person in your house you probably also have eyeglasses and sunglasses stashed in purses, cars, drawers and closets without cases.

Years ago I used up some of my fleece scraps making these very quick eyeglass holders. We still have them and still use them all the time.  I forget how many I made, but I made them in various sizes to hold different size glasses.  Those wrap around type sunglasses really need a big case, but reading glasses only require a slim little case.

I also had some scraps of flannel so I cut some small squares of it with pinking shears, to keep it from fraying, and added an extra, shorter piece of fabric when I sewed the edges of the case together to make a pocket for the little flannel cleaning cloth.

  6. Clever idea! I went through a year of losing one glasses case after another...I'm better now, but these would still be handy. :)
