How I make an Bead embroidered eyeglasses case…

I am so blind I have 3 different pairs of glasses that need—1 for computer-1for working on closer items and reading-1 pair of bifocals for distance and mid range. So as you can guess I need a few cases for them.  So if I gotta have them lying around they might as well be pretty.  I decided my newest project will be a eyeglasses case.I thought I would show you how I am doing it………..

Step 1…….

I folded a piece of copy paper in half and on the fold I traced around a old case I have been using.  Then I cut it out leaving about a 1/4 inch border for stitching.  Then I traced it on bead backing and cut it out.

Step 2…

I gathered some components I think I might want to use and place them in different ways to see how they might look.

I’m pretty happy with this lay out…….

Step 3……..

First I glued down the cabochon in the middle[it’s Mexican crazy lace agate}. Now let the stitching begin.

I build a bezel around the cabochon and secure the metal pieces in place with pretty beads.
