Eyeglass Case

Step 1: Lay a tie front side down. Measure and mark 17 inches in from the pointed tip, then cut the tie widthwise. Discard the narrow end of the tie.

Step 2: Using a seam ripper, open the seam along the back of the tie at least six inches, to create a pouch for the glasses.

Step 3: Measure eight inches in from the cut end and mark. Fold the tie at the mark toward the pointed tip; tuck under 1/2 inch of cut edge and pin.

Step 4: Using hand-stitches along the top and sides, secure the folded-over portion of tie to the top layer of fabric beneath it (taking care not to sew the pouch closed). Finish by affixing a set of self-adhesive Velcro dots to keep the case closed.
