Simple and easy to work up, this case is a gift mom really needs. The soft yarn will be the perfect cushion for a pair of reading glasses and the pretty shell pattern makes the case an accessory she will want to show off. Stitch the matching change purse for a sweet set.

If stitched with a heavy worsted/aran weight yarn, the stitch pattern is tight and it is not necessary to add a liner. However, you may prefer it for additional security and/or padding. If you feel you would like to add a liner, instructions are included in the individual download pattern. The instructions are very basic, no sewing machine necessary.

Individual download pattern includes instructions for both the eyeglass case and change purse as well as instructional photos and a tutorial for an optional liner.

Please note, this pattern was updated significantly when published for individual download. The original pattern published in ILikeCrochet is for the eyeglass case only. It does not contain the instructions for the Change Purse, instructional photos or the optional liner tutorial.
