Ribbon Eyeglass Case

Welcome back to the May Arts blog!  Here’s a quick and easy project that you can have ready for gift giving in under an hour…if you can bear to part with it.   We’re going to show you how to turn those leftover May Arts Ribbon scraps into a beautifully crafted eyeglass holder in 3 easy steps!  So grab your May Arts ribbons and let’s get started.



Here’s what you’ll need to get started:



Supply List:

  • 7 inch square of flannel or lightweight felt
  • 7 inch square of fusible webbing (Wonder Under, etc.)
  • Iron
  • Pressing cloth
  • Sewing machine/scissors or rotary cutter


1.  Layer flannel or felt and fusible webbing.  Arrange May Arts ribbons on the fusible webbing side, allowing the top ribbon to extend ¼” – ½” beyond the webbing.  Following manufacturer’s instructions for fusing, fuse the ribbons to the flannel/felt square.  I recommend using a pressing cloth for delicate ribbons.



2.  Machine stitch the ribbons together along the edges using a variety of decorative stitches or just straight and zig-zag, if desired.  Fold the top ribbon to the back of the square and stitch close to the edge.



3.  Fold, with right sides together, aligning the ribbon ends.  Sew down the long edge and along the bottom using a ¼” seam allowance.  Round the corner and lock your stitches using a backstitch or reverse.  Clip the corner, turn right side out and you’re done!
