Whimsical Eyeglass Case Pattern
When I turned 45, I suddenly needed reading glasses for up-close work. I soon discovered how easy it is to scratch lenses and how annoying it is to try to focus through an array of scratches. So I crocheted myself this eyeglass case to protect my glasses, and I love it!
This particular pattern utilizes a beautiful 3D stitch that creates textured diagonal stripes when complete. You can make around three eyeglass cases with one spool of cord, so make one for you and a couple to gift to friends. Or use the extra to crochet up one of my coin purse or clutch patterns!
Once crocheting is complete, finishing your purses requires some sewing to add a lining and a zipper closure. You can use a machine or hand sew. If sewing isn't in your skill set, recruit a friend or family member with seamstress skills to help. It only takes a half hour to create the lining and set the zipper. I have filmed a step-by-step instructional video to walk you through the process. I am also working on a video teaching you how to make a wrist strap to coordinate with the coin purse, so check the Tips page at www.funcrochetdesigns.com for these kinds of handy tutorials!
