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!
6 hours: 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 PDF pattern will be provided in advance, so you can collect your supplies. You’ll want to 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.
This workshop is a 6-hour live-stream event, conducted on Zoom, consisting of live instruction (no recording, please). You should have the current version of Zoom installed on your computer or laptop. Guidance for getting started will be sent in advance of the workshop.
