Sunglasses Case Tutorial

My sunglasses case is yet another item that was well worn and ready to be replaced. 

I made up 2 different cases - one for my sunnies and one for Amelie's:


Pattern Pieces (these have a scale on them if you want to enlarge and copy) otherwise the dimensions are:

Pattern Piece No. 1: 5 inches by 8 inches 

Pattern Piece No.2: 5 inches by 10 1/2 inches at peak

Cut one main piece and one lining piece from each pattern - giving you 4 pieces of fabric to work with!


With right sides together sew the front and back of both lining and main fabrics.

Once sewn trim the seam allowance and clip the bottom corners.


With right sides together place the lining inside the main fabric. Pin around the the raw edges and sew, leaving an opening for turning.

Trim the seam allowance and clip the corners.


Turn the right side out and either hand stitch the opening closed or top stitch the top of the sunglasses case.


Add a snap as a closure. 

Alternatively you can use a button and buttonhole or velcro (if you chose this method you will need to add it before you stitch the front and back together).

And you're DONE!!!

Another great gift idea or a fun way to use you special fabrics in your stash!
