Upcycling...........

after hours of addiction to Pinterest and pinning numerous"to do" projects, I finally did one!!
I turned this:
 into this:
All that was required was an unused glasses case, small quantities of fabric, Modge Podge and a couple of hours:
 Fabric adhered to outside of the case with Modge Podge
 The aligning of the pattern was good luck, not good management :-) !!
 the internal lining prepared
 lining adhered in place
The finished product. Pretty and practical and perfect for the handbag.

  4. I use an old glasses case for sewing items too, but I never made mine pretty like yours. I am inspired to get the mod podge out and make mine pretty too. Thanks.
