Keep your glasses safe with a super cute Sunglasses Case! Easy and fun!

A sunglasses case is a necessity, especially with cute fabric! Make one today using our Sunglasses Case Tutorial by Covered in Mod Podge to keep your glasses safe or make one as a gift!

Hi Ribbon Retreat friends. It’s Michaela from Covered in Mod Podge. I’m thrilled to be back with you again! Today, I’m going to share a padded and lined Sunglasses Case Tutorial.

What you’ll need:

2 fat quarters of coordinating fabric
{I used Textbook Blue Playground for the outside and Textbook Blue Composition Book for the lining. Both of these fabrics are from the School Days by American Jane for Moda.}
5/8″ covered button kit
1/4 of a yard of fusible fleece
elastic cord
thread {Out of the Blue by Sew Fine!}

Place sunglasses on your fabric, fold on bottom, cut fabric leaving an inch on all sides.

Set your sunglasses on top of your outer fabric. With the fold at the bottom, cut a rectangle with an inch on all sides. Do the same thing for the lining and the fusible fleece.

Cut 5 inches of your elastic cording.

Cut a 5 inch piece of your elastic cording. {Note: I used elastic thread. I should have used cording. The thread is going to be too flimsy. I think cord would last compared to the thread.}

Make a fabric covered button using the directions on your kit.

Follow your covered button kit’s instruction for making a covered button. I used my lining fabric so it would stand out.

Sew on your button to your outer fabric. Two inches down and centered.

Next, hand sew your button onto your outer fabric. I sewed it 2 inches down and then centered. I included this picture to show you my crazy awful hand sewing skills.

Follow the instructions on your fusible fleece to adhere it to the wrong side of the lining.

Adhere your fusible fleece on the outer fabric, then sew down both long sides.

Now, with your outer fabric right sides together, sew your fabric down both sides.

Sew down the sides of the fleece lining, leaving an opening for turning.

You’re going to do the same thing with your lining fabric. However, you’ll want to leave an inch and a half gap towards the bottom of one of the sides.

Turn your lining right side out, but leave your outer fabric inside out.

Next, turn your lining fabric right side out. Leave your outer fabric inside out.

Stuff your lining into the outer fabric, lining up the seams.

Stuff the lining into the outer fabric. You’ll want to stuff it all the way in. Also, line up your seams.

Tie a knot in your cording to create a loop.

Take your elastic cord and make a knot to form a loop.

Insert the loop inbetween the two fabrics with the knot on the outside.

Insert the loop between the two layers with the knot sticking out. Put it on the other side of the button.

Sew around the top of the case, stitching a few times over the elastic.

Now, you’re going to sew all the way around the top of the case. Go slow! Be careful that you’re keeping the other side away from the needle. You don’t want to sew the case shut on accident. Also, go back and forth over the elastic a couple of times to make sure its secure.

Pull the lining out of the outer fabric.

Pull the lining out of the outer fabric.

Shove the outer fabric through the hole and then pull the right side of the lining out of the hole as well.

Shove the outer fabric down into the lining. Then, grab through the hole in the lining and pull all of the outer fabric through.

Make sure your elastic is where it should be.

Now is a good time to check that your elastic loop is where it should be. Not that I’m writing from experience or anything!

Fold in the raw edges of your lining in and sew the hole shut.

Fold in the opening and sew shut. Push the lining down into the case. Press with iron.

Shove your lining into your outer fabric, press with an iron, and ta da! Sunglasses Case!

Easy sunglasses case tutorial with cute fabric and covered button!

Thank you Michaela!

If I had one of these, I would still have a cute pair of sunglasses that broke a few weeks ago.
I will have to make one for myself! 🙂
