Sunglasses Case

{ summer was here this week...can't wait for it to be back}

I have one last Easter project to complete but while I am putting the idea together I decided to share a cute sunglasses case. I originally made this case last year, but would like to show the tutorial for those of you who were not reading my blog than.

It is so easy to make and I am sure it took only an hour to finish the whole project. So if you fancy making your own sunglasses case for the forthcoming summer than here is a quick tutorial and some instructions of how to do it.

You will need:

2 pieces of fabric – for the inside and the outside
2 pieces of scraps – for the sunglasses frame and the lenses
Vliesofix – to attach the appliqué
A piece of wadding/ batting or an old blanket

Depending on your glasses decide how big you’d like to have your case and cut your fabric accordingly.

Draw or download from the internet the shape of the sunglasses you’ll use for the appliqué. I used a pair of Little Big Daughter’s sunglasses and the small size was just perfect.

Iron the appliqué into the middle of your outside fabric piece.

Pin the fabric to the wadding / batting and than stitch the appliqué.

Fold the outside piece inside out and stitch along the long side and the bottom short side.Turn to the front.

Now the inside part – fold the inside part inside out and stitch the long side. You need to have opening on both short sides.

Place the inside piece on top of the outside piece – front tides facing and stitch the top short side.

Look at the last photo your case should look like that. Now stitch the remaining short side from the inside piece of fabric and put it inside the case.



Wishing you a lovely weekend!
