after hours of addiction to Pinterest and pinning numerous"to do" projects, I finally did one!!
I turned 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.
