My old glasses case was in need of replacing as one of the metal strips had split and a sharp bit was sticking out of the fabric. I had a piece of teal fabric in the scrap basket which was the perfect size for a new case and teamed with some plain purple fabric they were transformed into this when I joined Cheryll and the others for FNwF.
When making the case this time I added the pull tabs to the front and back of the case so that I am not pushing on the metal tabs everytime I open the case - which seems to be hundreds of times everyday.
Which way do you insert the metal tape - curve side to the inside or outside?
I prefer to place the curved side - plain side - to the inside of the pouch/bag as I feel it is a more secure top and things do not manage to wriggle out but I did make a bag with the metal tape reversed and discovered that it makes a great container to hold wool while knitting. It stops the wool from rolling around on the floor and yet it allows it to slip through the top easily.
And it is the right size to put the knitting needles and wool back into when finished for the day.
During the week an email from Chooky arrived letting me know that she had organised another fun Zoom session for this morning. Good timing for me as today is my actual birthday and many birthday wishes from the other zoomers were received while I sipped on a glass of bubbles.
A start was made on quilting around some of the shapes in the panel while chatting via the screen.
Another beanie added to the finished pile.
Back soon and in the meantime
