In this fun and fast-paced workshop, you will create not one, but TWO snappy and stylish quilted eyeglass cases using a fast and intuitive quilt-as-you-go method: make one for you, and one for a friend!
Remember snap purses from your childhood?
They’re not just for lunch money anymore!
Snappy Eyeglass Cases make great stocking stuffers or little gifts. I’ll show you how to turn ordinary retractable measuring tape into the closure mechanism. We will also explore color choice and composition for an effective and attractive result. This is a great way to use those really special fat quarters, or even silks and brocades, as long as they are at least 10″ wide. A fully detailed pattern will be provided in class, so you can make snappy cases for all your family and friends. The pattern is easily adaptable to other sizes: make a snap purse for your scissors, pens, or other sewing tools.
- Choosing complimentary fabrics for an attractive result
- Quilt-as-you-go method, using your domestic machine and a walking foot
- How to create a metal tape snap purse closure
- Precision sewing for a professional finish
I will provide full hands-on instructions in class, as well as printed instructions with photos. This is a beginning to intermediate level class. Basic knowledge of walking foot quilting is helpful, but not necessary. We will learn together!
