Sunglass Case Tutorial
This is a fun little project, and took me only half an hour. It involves sewing only straight lines...perfect! Here's a quick tutorial to make a sunglasses case of your own.
-2 strips of fabric, 19" x 4.5"
-small piece of velcro
-sewing machine with thread, scissors
1. Cut two strips of fabric, 4.5" by 19" (more or less depending on size of your shades). In the picture you'll see I cut off the top portion of the material and sewed it on the other strip for a contrasting flap.
2. Sew the strips right side together on three sides. Flip right side out and iron flat.
3. (No pictures...sorry) Fold the main part of the case up and sew on the outside edge of the case, creating a pocket to keep your sunglasses in. For the fourth side that didn't get sewn in step two, I folded the material under and sewed the seam on the outward side.
4. Sew a velcro tab onto the flap and main case to keep it closed. You're done!
