Last Felted Eyeglasses Case
I used Palette Yarn, 100% Peruvian Highland wool, 2-ply fingering in Garnet Heather for this one. It is a little bit bigger than the last two that I made because this one is meant for regular size frames rather than reading glasses. My husband made another toggle button. This was made from a dogwood tree that we had to cut down on our property a year or two ago. I learned how to make needlepoint flower petals for the embroidery here. I think it looks sort of sunflower like, though that wasn't intended. I just picked colors that I liked against the red. I think that this is the last handmade Christmas gift for the year. Phew! I might fit in a couple of ornaments though if I find some inspiration. Mostly, I will be baking.
