Summer Sunglasses Case

Project by Nicola Hills


You will need:

A 10” zip

4” of elastic

Erasable pen

Basic Sewing kit

Sewing Machine

Stabilser/Bosal Foam

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)


How to:

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.
