Fabric Spectacle Case


Spectacle Case

This is for a Swap to create a fabric case for our partner,we had a choice of Spec/mobile/Kindle etc .so we chose Specs..........

I dye'd some white cotton fabric then rubber stamped over it with gold fabric paint (flowers)and layered onto felt, then made an air dried clay embellishment for the corner,painted with Luminere paints to match...the inside is fully lined ,using press studs for fastenings.

Really strange as there is so many ways to tackle this creating wise,I could have beaded or made fabric flowers for the flap,but for me it just evolves as i go along,starting with the fabric background and the colours i use.......I think i am spoilt for choice with a huge stash ! trying to match colours,I like to use mixed media makes it more enjoyable than just sewing jewellery on ! Yesterday was so depressing weather wise,cold and rainy,so this little project made the day go really quickly,and so enjoyable.
