Eyeglass case for airyfairy (Sarah)...she needed one to fit her 5x7 frame and this is what I came up with for her...simple but serviceable, done ITH with no raw edges...both front and back have grid quilting and designs can be added to either side...or grid can be omitted and a quilting or redwork design can be put in...very versatile, and very simple..This one's for you Sarah!

These are beautiful. I love that they are quilted front and back. Great job. You need to sell your designs.

Lovely design for the case and the stitching goes so well with the design of the material. You are very talented.

That is great. Hoping DBC will be back again too. I am still learning to use my machine so I love seeing work and being inspired by others.

This is so pretty. Very nicely done, and you are so talented to know how to do this. I would not know where to begin to design a case like this in the hoop. I am assuming you must need a hoop larger than a 5 x 7 to make a case for a hoop that size? Some day I hope to own a machine with a larger hoop size. Perhaps by then I will have the know how as to how to digitize a project like this. One can hope!

This is just beautiful - I'm also not a fan of the satin stitched edge ones and so prefer the turning. I love that you've made the front a hair shorter than the back for easy access.

This case is nice and as always, you are willing to help a fellow Cutie. I am sure Sarah loves it. The only one I have ever made, had a satin stitch edge, and I was so afraid I would cut the satin stitches when I tried to trim close. This is much better. Oh, by the way, my sister left with the one I made.-lol

Thanks, Toogie...I, too, am not fond of satin stitches on items like this..especially the things that have batting and are quilted...I much prefer a clean turned finish...and actually it is much faster to stitch out...win, win!!

airyfairy by airyfairy 11 Jan 2015

And uses much less thread!!!

You are so kind with all you do for others. I like the design and the case. May I ask you how many hoopings do you need and is any hand sewing to do?
I buyed the design for the purse I have shown in the last project only to see if there are rawedges in the front or zippered pocket and how to do this in the hoop:-)

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 10 Jan 2015

Thank you...the case is done in two hoopings...and the only hand sewing is to close the little opening used for turning..it is about 2 inches long...it could be glued or fused with Steam-a-Seam..or just left open...it is on the inside at the bottom of the case and you wouldn't see it anyway...but I choose to whip stitch it closed...very easy project...any design could be placed in either or both sides.
