Freebie Friday: A Felted Spectacle Glasses Case

Are you the kind of person that shoves their stuff into their bag randomly and later regrets it? No, just me? I once threw my spectacles in my overstuffed bag (as a backup! I was wearing contacts!) right next to my keys and have ever since regretted my hasty actions. Why? Well, the left lens on my spectacles now sports a lovely circular scratch from one of the keys on my key-chain.

 Today’s Freebie Friday is a huge help for anyone like me: A Felted Spectacle Glasses Case from CARNIVAL OF FELTMAKING by Gillian Harris. I think Gillian had me in mind when she came up with this project. Or at least people like me!

Look how cute and stylish it is:

Carnival of Felting

Add a splash of color and charm to your wardrobe or home by creating the delightful felt projects in Carnival of Feltmaking. In the follow-up to the successful Complete Feltmaking, Gillian draws on inspiration from the carnival atmosphere, featuring a diverse range oftwenty-six brilliant felt accessories and home items, like:

  • a plush rose-trimmed evening bag

  • a stunning swirling floral designa luminous eight-panel lampshade in a medley of patterns, accented with felted flowers and ribbons
  • a heavenly nuno-felted heart-shaped cushion
