When it comes to fabric choice, quilting cottons, decorator (unbacked curtain fabric) or light weight denims are best suited for this project. These fabrics are not only durable, they also come in a large variety of attractive colours and patterns, allowing you to personalise your project to suit your taste. What’s more, since only a minimal amount of fabric is required, it’s an excellent opportunity to utilise all those fabric scraps you may have lying around.

For the lining, quilting cottons or any basic cotton such as broadcloth or poplin, are a suitable choice. You’ll also need an iron on fleece such as Vilene H630 or Pellon 987F to give your glasses case a soft, padded feel. If you’re after a more thickly padded case, Vilene H640 or Pellon Thermolam TP971F will work just as well.

It allows you to create a stylish and functional glasses case in no time! The detailed photos provide additional visual guidance, helping to make the whole experience as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.
