Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Quick & Easy Eyeglasses Case with Phoomph!


Coats & Clark® Phoomph and Shannon Fabrics® Cuddle fabric are paired for a simple, soft, funky eyeglasses case you can make in about a half hour. 

Materials:

• Coats & Clark® Phoomph (www.coatsandclark.com)
• Shannon Fabrics Cuddle Jaguar Brown & Tan fabric (www.shannonfabrics.com)
• Crop-A-Dile punch (www.wermemorykeepers.com)
• Beacon® Fabri-Tac Adhesive (www.beaconadhesives.com)
• Westcott® Titanium Bonded Scissors (www.westcottbrand.com)

Instructions: 

1. Measure and cut two 6” x 7” pieces of Jaquar Cuddle fabric.



2. Cut 6” x 6” square of Phoomph.

3. Remove backing from one side of Phoomph, place onto outer edge of one piece of fabric.


4. Repeat on reverse side, with extra 2” extending off opposite edge.

5. Fold one 1” edge over edge, applying glue ONLY to outer 1” on each side, use Fabri-Tac adhesive to mount to inside (scissors inserted to show non-glued area).

6. Fold second 1” edge over to inside and glue with Fabri-Tac.

7. Fold fabric covered Phoomph in half, punch small holes through two outer edges every 1” for lacing.

8. Insert 2’ piece of black leather cording through two holes on BOTTOM edge (edge with “pocket”).   Add Fabri-Tac adhesive to outer 1” on each side, fold inward to meet in center and glue in place.  The result is a fabric bottom for your glasses pouch.



9. Continue lacing cording through holes, knot at outside of last set of holes, tie bow.
