Ultra-Quick Spectacles Pouch

DSCF1005

If you're looking for a quick project, the Spectacles Pouch from Nicole Mallalieu's You Sew, Girl! is a good one. It would make a lovely gift too, as almost everybody can use a case for their specs or sunnies. This one is actually going to be for one of my boys.

The trickiest bit for me was trimming the edges with the pinking shears. Seriously. The rest was dead easy, but for some reason, both pairs of pinking shears were wanting to chew, rather than cut the edges. I'm thinking that next time I might try one of the other finishing techniques or increase the seam allowance a little.

I may even try a better quality of felt. This stuff is the cheap acrylic kind. I have plans to make some of these in leather too.

I am participating in Blogtoberfest. I am also having a giveaway.
