Glasses cases and a furry assistant

I’ve been sorting things out ready for Clutter City and also trying to take photos of items going into my Folksy shop.  (I’ve had a four legged assistant who has been very demanding…one tummy rub for each photo taken)

These are some glasses cases that I’ve made.  They are made from a beautiful deep apricot coloured wool fabric which is from the fifties or early sixties.  Inside they are lined with some equally aged velvet in either a harvest gold or a sage green.

On the front I have sewn a small posy of flowers which I’ve crocheted.  The back of the posy is covered with a piece of pure wool felt before I hand sew it into position.   I also make the posies as small brooches (inspired by those lovely little china flower brooches that are nearly always chipped around the edges), and as embellishments on coat hangers.

I used to just put my glasses on my night stand when I went to sleep but a certain four legged fatty has been known to swipe things and knock them to the floor so I found using one of these gave my glasses a little protection.  Also the velvet feels lovely and luxurious against my fingers when I put my glasses inside.

There was a slight distraction as a certain someone felt he was being ignored and decided to jump up on to the table and knock carefully balanced props all over the place.
