Quick & Easy Sunglasses Case Pattern


I am notorious for losing my sunglasses. In fact, my brother bought be a bunch of $5 pairs last year for my birthday so that I would always have backup! And then you know what happened? I managed to hang on to my favorite pair for almost a year! Well, now my favorite pair got all scratched up. Not sure if it was from being in my bag or from the 2 year old, but either way, it’s sad right? So, I put together a cute little sunglasses case pattern and I am giving it to you today!

Quick and Easy Sunglasses Case Pattern! Takes about 10 minutes and is done in 3 steps

Seriously, these are easy. They should take you about 10 minutes (heck, even if you’re a newbie, it should take not too long!) and uses only 3 steps and all straight lines.

I made several because they were so much fun!

Let’s learn and let’s make some shall we?!

 

Easy Sunglasses Case Pattern:

Supplies Needed:

  • Scraps of 2 coordinating fabrics
  • Scraps of fusible fleece

 

Instructions:

Cut your fabric into 7 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch rectangles. You will need 4 total, 2 from each fabric. Go ahead and fuse your fleece to the wrong side of your outer fabric. Then cut about 1/2 inch off the length of that one so that it is slightly shorter than your inner fabric.

Step 1:

Partner each of your rectangles with their matching rectangle. With right sides together, sew around the outer edges of your rectangles, leaving one of the short ends open.

Step 2:

Turn your inner fabric rectangle that you just sewed right side out and stuff it down into the outer fabric (which is still wrong side out). Match up the top edges and then sew around the top edge leaving a small opening to turn it: (just be careful to only sew through your two layers of fabric at a time. This can be a little tricky-see the image below.)

Here I am sewing around the top. Stop frequently with your needle down to adjust the fabric if necessary:

Step 3:

Turn it all right side out and stuff the inner piece down into the outer with just a little edge showing at the top. Press it flat and top stitch all the way around the top (again being careful not to sew through all 4 layers, just the two you want):

    I LOVE to sew too!! I do not have a website as I am somewhat computer illiterate (sp?)! Want to work on that tho. My BIG passion is sewing handbags and purses. I pieced my first quilt this year, but, still need to have it quilted. You have a real knack with your blog! I retired 9 yrs ago and find sewing is what I should have done years ago. Lot less stressful!! :)

      Marilyn, I’ve cleaned out my quilt/knit room and have lots of unopened purse handles. A few years ago I made felted purses. I could send a picture of them to your email or a Facebook message. Will happily mail them to you for cost of shipping!!

    I was wondering if you remembered the manufacturer of the multi colored polka dot. It’s so cute as a glasses case, and I have a billion little pink dots to chose from in my stash…

    Thanks.
