Picture of How To Sew A Sunglass or Eyeglass Case
Making your own sunglass or eyeglass case is easy. First, decide how big your case needs to be. I like a finished case that measures 6" x 3", so I start with an outer fabric measuring 7" x 7". However, for bigger glasses, you might want to start with a rectangle of fabric that measures 7.5" x 8".

Step 1: Measure and cut your fabrics.

First, measure your outer fabric. I have chosen cute Japanese hedgehog fabric for my case, and dark brown fleece for my lining. I find that cotton or linen fabrics work best for this project. Once you have chosen your outer fabric, cut it to the size you want. Iron it so it has no wrinkles and will lay smooth and flat. Next, cut a piece of fleece in the same size. I generally do this by laying the outer fabric over the top of the fleece and then just cut around it, using the outer piece as a pattern. It does not have to be perfect.

Thanks for the super easy eyeglass case. My old case wore out and I have spent a bit of time trying to find a new one.

A great super easy pattern. Using fleece or plush terry for the inside makes a great case for glasses. I made 7 cases in a few hours. Thanks so much!!

Nice 'ible! Just what I needed to keep my sunglasses from getting scratched while in my purse. Had all the materials on hand and everything. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

Sorry for the image quality. All I had was my phone.
