Glasses and Fleece Glass Cases for Haiti

I have been down for a bit with a bad reaction to an anti-biotic, so blogging has been at the
back of my schedule. Sorry all. Now I need to play catch-up reading everyone's blogs. There should be like an annual recipe book of all the shared recipes from bloggers for each year.

Not sure if any of you follow a food blog - insidebrucrewlife, but recently she has been
collecting glasses to take with her on a mission to Haiti. I had been cutting out hundreds of
sleep beanie hats out of fleece, and there was always this strip of material left that came
out right down the middle. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what I could do with that
piece, and I so hate to waste material.
We had already started buying reading glasses for Inside BruCrew to take on her mission,
and hubby asked me how I wanted to pack them safely for the trip. It just hit, that I could cut
the fleece and line them with cotton scraps. (Of course I was forgetting, the ironing,
pinning, sewing, pinking and turning all of these).

I think we made well over 300 of these glass cases. I think this might be a great project with reading glasses, for the shelters?  Though poor hubby had to help do the pinking on them. Both of our hands had these huge dents. I do really hope her mission goes well. If anyone needs a pattern for these, for your own missions, just let me know.

Oh, what a fantastic idea! You amaze me. These are great and to think your husband helped too. These will be VERY much appreciated in Haiti, I'm sure.

Oh my made a ton! How amazing. These are such a great idea, and it's neat that you could use scraps from another project too.
