Day 265: DIY Sunglasses Case (from Old Shoulder Pads!)

Day 266: Wurban Urestern Bolero
Day 264: Nomadic Skirt

I’d never heard the word “Circe” used outside of Greek Mythology until I moved to South Carolina.  A Circe is a small gift.  It’s sort of an old southern custom to bring your hostess a Circe when you visit her home.  🙂

As most of you guys know by now, I’ve been doing more than just visiting my friendly hostess and her husband, I’ve actually been living with them as they prepare to move into their new house.  I think my hostess definitely deserves a Circe!  🙂

Luckily, I had a couple of shoulder pads hanging around from Day 261!

Remember us?

I grabbed one of the pads and drew a big W with my color-fading fabric pen.

Gimme a "W"!!!!

Then, I stitched over it twice:  Once with a straight stitch…

Just trace the letter!

…then again with a super-tiny zigzag stitch.

Next, I sewed the two pads together, leaving an opening on one side.

Stitch it up!

I turned the whole thing inside-out.  Now Whitney has a nifty new case to keep her sunglasses in this summer!  🙂

Thanks, Whitney! 🙂

I’m actually pretty happy with how my faux-embroidery job turned out!  I might even monogram my towels this way!  🙂

Cheers!
