sometimes…

by Nova on December 12, 2012

…you just need a bit of almost instant gratification from a project.

a case was required for some sunnies.

a quick rummage turned up appropriate fabric.

add to that a flex frame, some felt for lining & a great little tutorial  to follow for the basic construction.

approx 20 mins later case was complete.

probably not going to win any awards for neatness of sewing on this one but job  jobbed & I am happy :)

have you made anything that was so super quick & easy it left you wondering why you had put it off for days?!

glasses case sometimes...

notes:
fabric = glasses by echino
lining = cheapo craft felt
finished size = approx 3.25″ x 7″ (made to fit my sunnies)

Very nice! My tendency has always been to come up with epic over-ambitious projects that drag on for years (literally). These days I’m really feeling the pull of simple, small projects. I still put them off, though – been meaning to make some tea-towels for our kitchen for a year or two, and so far I’ve only managed to make a couple for other people…

I’d like to order some sunshine to make sunnies necessary again! Lovely. I feel like that about most things I make; if I stopped pondering so much I would make so much more!
