Why oh why is the easiest way not the best way? It is? Then why don’t I remember that? Last weekend I made an eyeglass case from a tie. I took a lot of time and hand sewed it. But it came out wonky. It was crooked and rumpled. Then I thought of an easy way. I remembered the great success that I have had using tacky glue on my placemat clutch purses. I ripped out all of the stitches and started again and it came out perfect! Here is how I made an eyeglass case from a tie the easy way.
I have quite a few tie remnants left over from my necktie headbands. I cut the fat end of the tie, measuring my glasses and adding a couple of inches.
I ran a bead of tacky glue down one side.
I shaped it around my glasses and pressed it into place so it fit around the rounded glasses but still looked straight on the outside.
I let it dry completely. I then turned it inside out and glued the bottom closed. Sorry but I don’t have photos of that part of the process. When that was dry I turned it right side out again. I added Velcro closures.
So easy! And so much better and faster than the sewed version. The easy way is the best way (at least in this case)!
