Sunglasses Case DIY

By:
Amanda Puleo

Summer is in full swing and its about time!! Hope everyone's year is starting to look up a bit.

Summer accessories are the best. I have a slight sunglasses obsession but I also don't trust myself with super expensive ones because they always end up in the bottom of my purse or getting lost in my car. I really needed a case to put them in, so here we go! Its super simple and inexpensive to make!

Supplies You'll Need for this Project

vinyl material
• thread
• scissors
• ruler/measuring tape
• pen
• hot glue gun (optional)
template (download here)

Start by downloading and printing out the template. Cut it out, trace it on the vinyl or leather fabric. Cut out the flat shape of your holder.

Where the flap shape begins, is where you will fold the fabric over to sew.

Line up each ends, and sew both sides. Next you will want to cut your wrap strip. I made mine 11.5 inches and about .25 inches wide.

Sew the end of your wrap about 1.5 inches up the middle of the top of your case (opposite end of the pocket). Once you have the top end of the wrap sewn on, sew another line at the bottom to secure the wrap.

The tassel part is 100% optional. You can either leave your wrap the way it is, or add the tassel to the bottom for some extra flare.

Cut a strip of your fabric about 2 inches wide and about 3 inches long. (Mine was a little too long so there was extra scrap than needed). Next, you want to cut skinny strips up the piece of fabric, but do not cut all the way to the top.

To complete your tassel, start but putting a dab of hot glue onto the end of your wrap. Make sure you put the glue on the underneath part. Then attach your wrap to the unfolded tassel about a 1/2 inch in. Hold the wrap in place for about a minute to ensure that the glue has dried.

Then you will want to continue to wrap the tassel around the end, adding dabs of glue as you go. Then ta-da! All done!
