Needles and a Pen bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

sunglasses pouch

Our guild is doing a swap today–everyone participating is bringing a sunglasses pouch.  As usual, I had about 800 ideas and then when I actually made the item I dumped all of my ideas and made this instead.  🙂

I love it and want to make another one for me (and I’m planning on sticking a chicken on one for my reading glasses wearing Nana–I love that she’s not on the internet and I can share my Christmas/birthday present plans for her!).  I followed a pattern, and all seemed to go well (I was testing it on my eyeglasses) but when I popped some big old giant sunglasses in there they just barely fit length-wise.  So I hope I get paired with someone with modestly sized rims!

Fran - Adorable! I know a place where you could see those…

Audrey - This is so cute! Where did you find this line of fabric and what is it called? love it!

Susan Phillips - I was the recipient of this sunglasses case, and I love it! I have “modestly sized rims” so the case is a perfect fit. I love the linen and the fact that the applique matches the inside fabric. Thank you, Traci!
