I wanted a soft case for my sunglasses that was easy to open all the way, so they where quick to get out when I needed them and easy to put back. This seemed like the best design for it =) The reason I wanted a soft case was because I don't want it to take up a lot of room in my bag when not in use. And the Raccoon Case was born! I hope you will enjoy this easy and quick to make (less then an hour to make) little case as much as I do, it's a perfect, quickly whipped up gift =) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY The pattern has color photos showing every step of making the case but basic sewing skills is of course good. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Ca 3 1/2" x 7 1/2"
