Hi! Nancy here, from My Blonde Ambitions. I’m excited to be guest posting again for Mique during her Funner in the Summer series. I don’t know about you, but a lot of my “crafts” are born out of necessity. I recently went to Puerto Rico with my husband Travis and the day before I left on the trip I thought, “I could really use a sunglasses case.” So I made one. I thought it was so simple and clever that I wanted to share it with you. I’ve made and seen similar little cases like this before, but I like this one the best (how’s that for confidence?). This case is so quick and easy it would be a fun beginning sewing project. Before I show you the how to I thought I’d keep your attention with a picture of the final product.
Besides giving cushion to your sunglasses the fleece keeps them from getting scratched. Smart, right?
Then pull your fabric through itself like you’re turning a sock outside in. Isn’t it nice when those laundry skills come in handy? It’s just like in Karate Kid: you’re learning sewing skills when you think you’re doing laundry just like Danielson was learning Karate while waxing cars. Like I said, I’m really smart.
Once you’ve got your case turned nicely push the open top in about 1/2 inch or so, pin and then sew closed.
But before you sew up your pouch it’s much easier to sew on your Velcro at this stage. Once you’ve sewn your Velcro on go ahead and pin and sew up the sides.
Now if you’re anything like me you might want a little embellishment (the icing on the cake). Why not pin on one of my fabric flowers? Check out that tutorial here.
But wait! Okay so I just like saying that and pretending that I’m an infomercial. But seriously, sometimes when I make projects that are this quick and easy I make two. One for me, and one for you. So head on over to my blog to enter for your chance to win the second case. Good luck! Thanks Mique!
Not too long ago I had Nancy guest post and she shared her fabulous jewelry holder. Lucky for us in addition to being super mom to her two cute kids and wonder wife Nancy posts her tutorials at My Blonde Ambitions. She’s an amazing seamstress and full of ideas. Stop by and say hi.
