How to Make Cases for Eye Glasses  with Easy  Crafts Idea Instructions for Kids


piece of felt, about 6 by 7 inches package of paper for cleaning glasses gold, silver, or colored thread
scissors; tape measure; needle; chalk


Step 1

Cut the felt into two pieces, 3 by 7 inches each.

Step 2


In the center of one of the pieces of felt, sketch with chalk, but very lightly, the initials of the person to whom you will give this gift. Embroider the initials with a chain stitch.

Tip : How to Sew Chain Stitch

Make a knot at the end of your thread. Put the needle in the fabric as for a running stitch. When the point is through and the eye is still out, bring the thread under the point of the needle. Then draw the needle all the way through to form a loop. For the next chain stitch, and those after that, put the needle in right next to the place where the thread came out, bring the thread under it again to form a loop, and continue doing so until the chain stitch is done.

Step 3

Sew the pieces of felt together on three sides with a blanket stitch. One side will remain unsewn, for the glasses to be put in.

Tip : How to Sew Blanket Stitch

To blanket stitch, make a knot at the end of your piece of thread. Put your needle in Y4 inch from the edge of the fabric, put the thread under the point of the needle and then pull the needle with the rest of the thread through. Repeat until finished.

Step 4

When you are finished, put in the case a package of Sight-Saver papers, sold in all drugstores and dime stores, so that the recipient of the gift can clean the glasses.
