What’s the Project? This summer sew up a cute little DIY sunglasses case in 3 easy steps. It’s great to throw in your purse or beach bag and take on the go with you.
I am notorious for losing my sunglasses.
In fact, my brother bought me a bunch of $5 pairs last year for my birthday so that I would always have a 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 DIY sunglasses case pattern and I am giving it to you today!
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 a few 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
- 1 scrap fabric #1 (outer fabric)
- 1 scrap fabric #2 (inner fabric)
- 1 scraps fusible fleece
- Cut your fabric into 7 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch rectangles. You will need 4 total, 2 from each fabric.
- 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.
- 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.
- Turn the 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. Stop frequently with your needle down to adjust the fabric if necessary.
- 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).
- And you are done! Pretty easy I hope?
