Sunglasses case

Because it seems like we’ll have to wait a little longer for the sun (sad face), there is more time to sew summer gadgets (happy face). Already to many of my sunglasses got damaged because I put them loose in my purse, that’s why I made this practical sunglasses case.

The case I will be making has two layers, oilcloth on the outside and soft tissue on the inside. You won’t need much fabric, so you can use leftovers for this project. Cut the two pieces out using this template. (why do I always have to think about pizza when I see it ?!) Feel free to enlarge it or make it more oval. I used diameter 19,5 cm. When drawing the second piece, make sure to mirror the pattern!

Once cut out, place the two pieces on each other, wrong sides facing. You stitch the parts together using a bias tape. A bias binder foot might be very useful doing so! Start at the beginning of the arrow (see template) and continue in this direction. Once you have passed the dashed line a few centimeters, fold the circle in two, that the borders overlap. Now continue to sew until the end. Reinforce the last stitches and cut of the bias.

No more scratched sunglasses from now on!
