Summer Sunglasses Case
Project by Nicola Hills
You will need:
A 10” zip
4” of elastic
Basic Sewing kit
2 x Half Metres of Fabric
Cut 2 - 8” x 4” 2 for the outer, 2 for the lining and 2 bosal foam
(fold fabric in half long side, draw a curve for the bottom of the case see picture below)
To place the zip sandwich it between the outer and lining fabrics like below.
Use the zipper foot to sew close to the zip.
* I did not use stabiliser in between but you would need to to protect the glasses
Repeat for the other side.
Open out and press.
Top stitch down each side.
With R/S together clip or pin the two outer pieces, then the lining pieces.
Sew all around but leave a 1.5” gap in the lining section to turn out
*Top tip* Un-zip the zip before sewing around!
Turn rightsides out.
Press flat. Sew up the gap in the lining.
Top stitch around the outer fabric and add a zipper pull.
