My friend L. asked me to make her some eyeglass cases for her booth Magrini Girlz, at Boomers Marketplace in Oklahoma City. You can see more about her booth and the Marketplace here.
I made some and sent them to her – they were similar to these, although not exactly the same because I make every one different, somehow, some way.
But guess what I forgot? Padding! They still work fine, but I made some with padding at her request and they turned out so much cuter, substantial feeling and… well just more professional looking!
Here they are as they are being assembled:
Sitting in a jumble on my cabinet waiting to be boxed and shipped out…
And here they are with the padding inside them! Can you tell a difference? I’ve posted these on my Etsy site, and they are available for purchase, as well as the ones above without padding.
As you can see, I love a challenge, and to figure out how to make something not only good, but better than what’s out there – that’s what I do!
Using items that are already in circulation rather than buying new is also a great way to help our environment as well!
If you have any ideas of items I can make using scraps of fabric – please let me know!
