Semi-hard eyeglasses cases protect your eye wear from being scratched, bent or broken. These cases can be strictly utilitarian or may have some decorative qualities. Making your own case lets you customise your protective gear to suit your own style and tastes. Creating a case requires only a few simple materials and a small amount of time.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Measure and cut out two identical rectangles from the plastic canvas. These should be at least one half of an inch longer and wider than the glasses you will be storing. Use the yarn and tapestry needle to whip stitch three of the four sides together. Leave one of the shorter ends open.

  2. 2

    Measure out two rectangles of fabric that are slightly wider than and twice as long as the plastic canvas body. Include about a half-inch seam allowance on both the length and width of the fabric. Cut out the rectangles. Hold the fabric pieces together so that the right sides are facing each other. Sew the edges together, leaving one of the shorter ends open. Turn the fabric pouch inside-out.

  3. 3

    Slip the plastic canvas body into the fabric pouch. Sew the open end of the fabric closed. Push the plastic canvas to the bottom of the closed pouch. Stuff the fabric that is not covering the plastic canvas body down into its mouth. Your semi-hard eyeglasses case is complete. If you like, you can sew the inside and outside of the fabric together through the plastic canvas to keep to pieces from wiggling out of place.
