My skinny reading glasses just flopped around in an ugly normal size eyeglass case in my purse. I decided to make a pretty case that would be the right size, and realized the case would need something rigid to protect the glasses properly. I cut up a plastic gallon size jug that milk comes in, and used the "corners" of the sides. I glued batting to both sides of the plastic pieces, then covered the outside of the case with fabric, sewing by hand to hold both sides together [good project while watching tv]. Added the lining, and voile, done. The milk jug plastic gave the perfect stiffness to the project...a new way to recycle, lol. I'm new to this site, and I love it already!

Thinking creatively - adaptable to cases for all those tiny but fragile electronic music MIDI boxes my DH is always needing.

What a neat idea! I was thinking of making a calculator case and a cell phone case and the milk jug might work for those things, too. Thanks.
