Squirrelly Eye Glass Catcher
Happy Saturday and Happy 80th Birthday to Batman! Sue is a huge Batman fan, and I’m thinking we may need to make a Batman quilt someday soon. Here’s a fun link to a little history on our favorite comic book hero DC Comics Batman history. Now, let’s hear about our squirrel project of an eye glass catcher.
Earlier this year, I did some quilting for Mary on her wonderful quilt top. I was so happy to do that for her! As a thank you, she sent over a care package that included this very cool kit.
The kit includes all the pieces needed to make three eye glass catchers. Even the pieces of metal measuring tape to make the top snap closed!
Eye Glass Fun
This project was not on the to-do list at all, or even on Sue’s THE Master list. It is definitely a squirrel of a project – one I snuck in on last Sunday. I was tired of sewing quilt blocks together. The next thing up was another Dr. Seuss project – umm, no. That can wait. So, we set to work on an eye glass case or catcher.
Of course I forgot to take many pictures! Isn’t that a requirement of a DrEAMi project (drop everything and make it)?! The first step involves appliqué – in this case the eyeglass shape onto the front fabric.
Eye Glass Payback
Mary’s birthday was March 24th. Had we not been in the middle of a sewing-room-slowdown-slump, these would have been in her hands by that date. Instead, they got mailed to her this week along with belated wishes. One can always celebrate one’s birthday, don’t you think?
I tested out the case and my glasses fit inside quickly nicely. I hope Mary likes how her kit turned out!
