DIY Potholder Eye Glass Case

The end of the school year is around the corner and this means teacher’s gifts. If you hold out on giving these gifts, that is cool. No judgement here. I, however, like to give teacher gifts at the end of the school year. Something the teacher can use something homemade (if possible) and something that will help them remember my child. As a past teacher, I have gifts from my preschool students that still make me think of them.

This year, my daughter’s teacher wears glasses and my daughter is into sewing, which has me thinking that it might be a good idea to make her teacher an eyeglass case, something she will use often. My daughter can pick out the potholder and it can have patterns, designs and be whatever colors my daughter thinks her teacher will love. Not only will it be a gift she can make her teacher, it is something that will be personally picked out for her teacher.

If this is a project that interests you, here’s what you need to do.
