    Quilted Eyeglass Cases with Paintstiks Deco

    Here are some eyeglass cases I just finished. They are hand-dyed fabrics with Shiva Paintstik Rubbings and then FMQing. I'm pretty happy with the way these experimental cases turned out! They were quick and easy and I had a lot of fun with the paintstik rubbings on these. ;-) (Here's a link to the Paintstiks I used...there's a demo video linked near the bottom of the page: http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/3889103-AA.shtml )

    They have a loop and button closure on the front.

    And here's a view of the backs.

    Very pretty eyeglass cases! They would also be nice for storing your rotary cutter in for going to class.

    What a great idea! I've been looking at these thinking there must be more uses for them... And thinking of the possibilities of similar ones in different sizes too; maybe iPad cases even!

    jusst a word about paint sticks....PLAN ahead when you think you are going to do them. I really should make a tute...anyway...the reason I say that is , once you peel the skin of the stick, be ready to do several rubbings, so that you are only using one color (or maybe two) at a time. the longer the stick is unpeeled, the quicker it starts to dry again making a NEW skin! make/cover a large work surface, I love foam core board for this and blue painters tape! THe quicker and lighter you work, the better the results. Remember less is best you can always add another color or deeper layers of the same, later after the first layer has dried a bit.

    I just love playing with paint sticks!
