Make MOST Ministries eye glass cases. Plan a sewing day or days to make eyeglass cases.
(Note: MOST Ministries does not collect hard cases.) 

To make eyeglass cases you will need:

  • Fabric (i.e., felt - soft yet sturdy, upholstery, or denim)
  • Thread to match your fabric
  • Sewing Machine
Instructions (Option 1):                                                
  • Cut fabric piece 7 1/2” square
  • Hem one top edge (1/2” edge)
  • Fold in half
  • Sew side and bottom seam (1/2” seams)
  • Turn inside out unless felt is used or you zigzag or serge the side seam
Instructions (Option 2):
  • Cut fabric pieces 14 ½ x 4 ½ “
  • Hem top edges
  • Fold in half
  • Sew both long side seams (1/2” seams)
  • Turn inside out unless felt is used or you zigzag or serge the side seams

MOST Ministries is one of the Gifts from the Heart (GFTH) recipients for the LWML Convention in Milwaukee in June. Bring eyeglasses and eyeglass cases to Milwaukee. 

Gospel Focus: THEY SHALL SEE GOD

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8).

Devotion as You Plan

Before your group starts making the eyeglass cases for Most Ministries, open the meeting with the “I Love to Tell the Story” entitled Love Like ThatOr you can listen to the podcast from here.

Prayer as You Plan and Prepare

Heavenly Father, please bless all the hands that will be creating eyeglass cases for MOST Ministries. We pray for all the people in need of glasses where MOST Ministries serves. We pray that each one may have the opportunity to learn your Gospel message and see You as their savior. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Activities as We Stay-At-Home

Check with local nursing homes to see if they can use handmade fabric masks for their staff to wear as a measure of protection for the residents they serve. While we realize that the fabric masks are not surgical/medical grade and cannot be used as Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for health care workers, perhaps there are people in care facilities who can use them. 

Here are two patterns: Fabric Masks with Elastic and Fabric Masks with Fabric Ties.
