Spectacle Case

I'm always losing my spectacles, they needed a case. Looking for inspiration in various ladies magazines 1840-1865 for dimensions and materials, plus looking at a few originals I came up with one. I was not going for an exact copy. Thinking about Christmas I wondered what a young girl would have had available to make a gift, one just the right be hung on the tree.  She would have seen one in a magazine for her inspiration, then rummaged through her mothers box of scrap fabrics and floss or trims, and some pasteboard.
