Glasses Case and Passport Holder

My lovely Aunty mentioned the other day that she wanted a soft glasses cover. She is travelling a lot at the moment and felt that the soft covers were better. So I volunteered to whip one up for her - even though she is more than able to do it herself!

I knew I'd seen some great covers over at Sew Mama Sew - especially during their scrap buster month. I really liked the shape of the case made by Liesl and although I'm right into paper piecing - I wanted more of a quilted look. So thank you Liesl for the pattern, and here is my version of your glasses case.

I love it when you think of a project and know you have exactly the right fabric in your stash for it. Which was the case with the glasses case. Paula Prass Flights of Fancy with the Eiffel Tower is perfect for my aunty who has recently been to France and is going back in a few weeks.

After the glasses case I was inspired, particularily when I saw my other piece of Paula Prass fabric. A passport cover! Of course - just the thing for a traveller. All I did was sew 2 rectangles together, turn, and then fold over a little sleeve to slip the cover into, topstich in place - et voila! A neat little cover in a seriously appropriate fabric!

And as I was logging in to make this post I noticed something - this is my 100th post! Surely I must do a giveaway soon?........ :)
