Making a Spectacle
I have a little project from last year to show you today.
I was lucky enough to test some of the patterns while Nikki was writing her book You Sew Girl.
This is the spectacles pouch from page 73. It has a beginners rating and it's really quick and easy.
The wool felt makes it a perfect project for the younger novice sewers too. It's a fabulous blank canvas to embellish as you please (so of course, I made mine in pink with a floral motif).
But the best bit is the bottom - it has this very nifty expandable pleat so that it can fit even the chunkiest of blowfly sunnies!
