Sewing DIY – Scrap buster – glasses case

This glasses case is a perfect way to use up some scrap fabrics from your stash.

You will need 4 pieces of scrap fabric measuring 7 inches long by 5 inches wide. Your fabrics don’t need to match, you just need two pieces for the exterior and 2 for the interior. If you are using light fabric, like I did in these photos, you may want to interface for a bit of stability. If you are using heavier fabric, or quilted fabric, interfacing is not needed.

Sew the two exterior pieces together leaving one 5 inch end open. Repeat for the two interior pieces, leaving the one 5 inch end open plus a 3 inch opening on one long side, for turning.

With right sides together, sew the interior to the exterior along the open 5 inch end.

Pull right sides out and press corners and tuck in the 3 inch opening in the interior piece and stitch closed.

Tuck the interior into the exterior, press and you are done!

I also made one with some scraps of quilt as you go pieces. All these scraps are pieced and quilted onto a piece of quilters batting. Then cut to the 7 x 5 inch pieces. I used a solid cotton for the interior. The quilt batting will give my cheaters a bit of added protection.
