Hi!  It's Melissa from the Polka Dot Chair Blog.  Today I'm going to be sharing with you a tutorial on how to make this fun little sunglasses case. There are two things you should know about me 1) I ALWAYS have a pair of sunglasses with me, I can't drive without them, the sun hurts my eyes.   2) My purse is a MESS.   All  of the sunglass cases I had before were to heavy so I didn't carry them around with me.  I made this simple case to be lightweight enough to not weigh me down ... ...read more

Hello from Germany...Bret and I are in Cologne for the H&H show.
