I am still in my lazy mood, so today I made another eye glass case.
I got the pattern from Better Homes and Gardens. The felted fun flower I made up and the prim sunflower is from Babycakes.
The one on the left is more prim, done with dyed wool and basic blanket stitch.
The one on the right is more modern, since I made it for my daughter and wanted it to be fun.
I used roving and needle felted the flower and yarns into the wool. Then I went over the piece with floss to tack it down and embellish it. I decided to add a few swirls with the floss that I won from Laura of ArtFabrik. The color I used is called Honey and has a nice variation of light to darker yellows.
These are fun and easy to make up and you can add anything you like for a design. Great idea to make ahead for gifts.
I use wool that has been over felted so it is thicker and great cushion for your glasses.
