How to Make a Quick Eyeglasses Holder.
1. Fold the pot holder in half, keeping the loop at the top.
2. Starting at the fold on the bottom, stitch across the bottom and up the open side to the top edge.
Back stitch at the beginning and end of the stitching.
3. Leave the top open to slide the eyeglasses in.
The holder can be hung by the loop to keep eyeglasses handy, or may be used to tuck glasses safely in a purse or bag.
It could also be used as a scissors holder, or for transporting other small crafting tools.
The pot holder may be decorated before stitching. Add an initial, buttons, or a flower to embellish it.
Or stitch the edge with a blanket stitch using colorful embroidery floss.
