I have recently had to start wearing glasses. The cases sometimes take up a lot of room . . . or they do not close and so out fall the glasses into whatever bag I am carrying. Consequently, I set out to solve this problem by designing a glasses case. I love it. This little felted bag has a kisslock frame to keep the glasses where you put them. Now that I have carried my glasses around in these cases for a while, I am realizing how great the case is for pencils, my favorite fountain pen, the every day pens I use in multiple colors. A friend says it's perfect for her epi pen. She has a special pocket in her purse for easy access. A great gift for glasses-wearing friends, or those who only wear cool shades, for the school-going person who wants to carry pens and pencils in something other than those not so great looking pouches you find at the office supply store. Have fun with these: pink for readers, blue for shades, red for pencils and pens . . .
