Step 5: Fold and Sew Lining fabric

Step 5:  Time for the lining.  Fold the lining fabric in half, right sides together.  Sew along the long side, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Sew along 1 short side, but leave a small opening. (about two fingers worth)
Can't wait to try this! My Daughter and I love to sew together, and this is a perfect project for us:)
Really nice, I like the fabric you chose. But I want to know how did you embroidered the glasses? Thanks
I just googled &quot;sunglasses coloring pages,&quot; picked the one I liked best, printed it out at the size that I wanted and cut them out. I applied applique adhesive (can be found at JoAnns Fabrics) to the back of the yellow fabric and the gold fabric I used for the lens. I then pinned the sunglasses cut out to the yellow fabric and cut it out, and then cut out the lens in the gold fabric. Next, I ironed the design on the fabric. (I did this after I sewed the batting onto the outer fabric and before sewing the lining to it) The last thing I do for appliques is to make small stitches with colored embroidery thread around the edges to make sure it doesn't peel off. Here is a close up picture of the stitching.<br><br>Hope this is a good explanation!
Thanks! Your pic helped a lot! I really love the fabrics you chose. When I'm done I'll put a pic here too. I live in Brazil, and I've never seen this applique adhesive in the craft's stores here but I just used regular white glue and it worked just as fine.
I definitely want to see when you get done!
I just did it by hand with a needle and some embroidery thread. The thread I buy is pretty thick, six strands twisted together.
Here are the two I've made. I even added magnets inside the lining on the second one to keep it closed. Thanks for your wonderful tutorial!
&nbsp;Too bad I only have one pair of glasses :(
U can still use it even tho u only have 1 pair. U can store them there @ nite when u take them off 2 go 2 sleep. My nite stand usually gets cluttered up &amp; a case usually keeps them clean &amp; safe from gettin scratched :-)
Thanks, I need to make a case for my safety glasses at work!<br />
Love the tute.<br />
Very nice, you REALLY take care of your glasses.&nbsp;
Looks great!&nbsp; I love the bonus eyeglasses label on the outside.<br />
