Stitched Sunglasses Case

My Stitched Sunglasses Case was inspired by this beautiful fabric from Hobby Lobby!While perusing through oodles of fabric at Hobby Lobby.  Recently, I came across the most adorable yellow and gray floral pattern!  What is it about that color combo that is so appealing?  It’s just so bright and cheery!

This delightfully happy pattern brought thoughts of summers by the pool and lounging on the beach.  I wanted to make something that symbolized summer.  And since I can never seem to keep my sunglasses from being mangled in my purse (or by tiny hands), I decided to make this adorable stitched sunglasses case!
Here’s what you need:
Two pieces of coordinating fabric
Lightweight fusible fleece
Coordinating thread
Scissors
Brooch or decorative embellishment (optional)
Start by cutting your two pieces of fabric into 10 inch x 10 inch squares. One will be the outside fabric and the other will be the inner lining.  (I purposely made these too big.)  Cut a 3 inch x 2 inch piece out of the fabric you are using on the outside.   Next cut the fusible fleece into a 9 inch x 9 inch square.
Place the two pieces of fabric right side together.  Lay the fusible fleece in the center and pin around the edges.  (Be sure to leave a 3 inch opening to turn the fabric right side out.)
Sew around the edges (leaving that opening).
Cut the excess fabric and turn right side out.
Iron the square.  (I folded the opening in and ironed so it would be easier to sew.)
Next, pin the opening together and top stitch along that edge and set aside.
Take the 3 inch x 2 inch fabric and fold the long edges to the middle.  Iron in place.  Then, fold in half and iron again.  (I did it this way so the edge looked cleaner than just folding in half and folding in half again.)
Stitch along the open edge.
Fold the piece in half and place the raw edge on the right side of the 9 inch square (loop will be pointing to the middle).  Pin in place.  Then fold your 9 inch square in half and pin along the edge and bottom.
Stitch around the two sides (1/2 inch seam).
Cut the bottom corners.
Turn right side out, push out the corners and add embellishment.

It was so easy to make!  I made three in an hour!

    the PDF link isn’t working correctly….any hints for me? :)

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      I’m working on it for you, Regina! Unfortunately the file is saved on my old computer so this might take a bit. =)

  26. OK! Pinning this one as well!

  27. This is adorable, and I would love to make one. But, I can’t seem to get the PDF to open. Any suggestions?

  28. Hey…I just downloaded the pdf file, had to sign up for a new membership, and I think it contained a virus. It changed my default search engine from google to something called B1. I hope that is ALL its done! Any insight on this?
