Well, I got some new glasses from Firmoo.com and they came in while I was at work, but Handy Andy was at home...and apparently he decided he wanted to try them on...
Anyway, Firmoo contacted me a few weeks ago to try out a pair of their glasses, and I'm really glad I did! I decided to take a little [fashion] risk and choose a pair of glasses that are different from any style I've ever worn before. But they were free, so there's no time like the present! I chose the Chocolate Brown Full Frame acetate glasses.
I actually really love them! Overall, I had a good experience with Firmoo. After choosing my frames, I just entered the numbers on my script from my eye doctor and ordered. All the glasses they have are really inexpensive, and I was a little worried about the quality, but they are really nice! They came ten days after I placed my order, along with a case, cleaning cloth and keychain screwdriver.
And, guess what?! You could get a free pair of glasses too! Firmoo offers a First Pair Free program where you can get the first pair of glasses you order free, so go check it out!
Also, I decided to make a case for my new glasses, so here it is. I used some patterned fabric for the outside, and some white fleece for the inside.
I measured my glasses and added some seam allowance, I also added about an inch and a half for a flap on just one piece of fleece and one piece of the patterned fabric. Before sewing, I laid the patterned fabric right sides together and then put the fleece on either side. Then I sewed the sides and the bottom, turned it right-side out and finished the edges of the flap. I added a button as well, but I don't have any instructions for that because, apparently, I'm terrible at cutting and finishing a button hole. If I can figure it out, I'm confident you can.
Thanks for stopping by!
