felted eyeglass case

This weekend I knitted up eyeglass cases in garter stitch and then felted them. I am really loving making up patterns these days.This one is made of a beautiful green/blue/yellow variegated 100% wool from the UK. It felts amazing and I had the wool on hand. I am really making efforts to use what I have. The applique is a ash leaf cut from a felted sweater. It is trimmed with a button and a ribbon to be used as the clasp and is lined with a burgandy cotton flannel (shown in the background) that matches the color of the leaf . I am going to list it on my Etsy shop today.

I just found your blog by searching eyeglasses. That case is adorable! I love the glasses, too. They have a vintage look.
