My eyes have been struggling for about the past 6 months (maybe longer - I'm in serious denial) to focus at short distances. Several months ago, I broke down and bought the lowest magnification reading glasses I could find, +1.00. This was a long process that involved trying on glasses everywhere I saw them - the grocery store, the drugstore, Ross, TJ Maxx, Walmart, and probably countless other places I can't even remember, in an effort to find ones that looked good on me. Well, that was an impossibility, so I settled for the cheap ones in the dollar bin at Target. That way I could buy a couple pair and have one in my purse, and one at home. I didn't care what they looked like anymore. After all, I didn't really need them, so no one would see me wearing them if I never put them on.
The cheapie glasses came in a cheapie plastic case with a zip top that offered no real protection. They wouldn't cost much to replace, but I had invested a lot of time to find them, and wanted something cute to carry them in.
I love my new little case, and also the fact that it matches my current purse and the more expensive reading glasses I bought.
Now if I would just wear the darn things so I could see!
You will need:
felt scrap, or other soft lining material
velcro for closure
optional: dies for flower and flap
I may be posting some of my other crafty projects I've been working on until my stamping mojo returns. I think it's still on spring break!
