I am crazy for designing useful accessories like eyeglass cases. In fact my line of monogrammable eyeglass case were part of my first designs in my JHD line. While there is no real comparison to the luxury of a hand painted canvas that has been stitched with premium threads and professionally hand finished I think I came up with a project that is pretty darn close and would only cost a few dollars. So below is the luxury case followed by my plastic canvas prototype. I am working on the step by step tutorial to post to this blog in the next few weeks because I think everyone should be able to stitch and have cool cases to tote around and show off your skills. So, stay tuned . . .
