Crafting with Glasses - A Tutorial.

Inspired by the pin from yesterday's post (thank you anonymous crafter!), I made these:

This is how I did it:

First, I popped the lenses out of two pairs of my old and broken glasses. Then I searched around my studio for images that would fit inside them.

Then I cut out the fabric (make sure to leave room around the edges - you can trim it later).

Coat the lens in Mod Podge, lay the fabric down, and coat the back of the fabric to saturate it:

I also cut out this picture from my old Woman's Day magazine.

Pretty Eve, indeed. I also chose an embroidered S and a picket fence:

Then I let those dry and went to pick up Sage at kindergarten. On the way home I stopped by the American Way in Burbank and bought these ugly glasses:

And turned the lenses into a dancing couple, a lemon, a shirt and a strawberry. These are the backs:

I hot glued flat-backed craft pins to the backs of them, then cut tiny holes in the felt for the prongs to fit through, then glued the felt down. I suggest a craft glue or super glue for this, as well as for adhering a decorative cord around the rim. Hot glue is a bitch. Also, this craft is messy. Don't do it on the new ironing board cover you just made and were so proud of, because you will end up getting glue on it and cursing in front of your children.

This was completely unintentional, but I like how these three fit together:

Happy crafting!

edited to add: After a bit of Googling, I found more tutorials for this here and here. I like this craft because every one comes out different.

also edited to add: Thanks to Jenny for featuring this on! . . . and Jen from indie fixx!. . . and the folks from the HGTV message boards!
