3 step felt sunglass case

Its the middle of May and while June 21 is the beginning of Summer - here in our neck of the world OUR SUMMER officially begins Wednesday the 22nd of May. The last day of school for my 2 youngest children is the 22nd at 11:45 to be exact so lots of time in the summer sun is ahead of us.

This past weekend we went to Palm Springs and my sun glasses just lay freely in my bag - banging about - so with plans for summer outings in the works I figured I better get a case for my glasses - quick or I am sure I'll be shelling out lots for new glasses with the scratches and dings left on my shades...enter my "CRAFTINESS" lightbulb moment:
Quick 3 step sunglass case

Supplies needed: Felt, ribbon and embellishments

(1)Cut a square piece of felt (when closed will cover your sunglasses) - once you have your square cut grab some ribbon and lay it out -
(2)once you figure out the look you want straight stitch it on to the felt.

(3)Next turn the felt right sides facing each other and sew up the 2 sides - then turn inside out

The three steps are done but once you have a turned the case right side out you COULD add your embellishments - I added what I thought were hand sewn & cut feathers but my daughter said they look like leaves - oh well.
At least it looks good on.

I am super thrilled with my new sunglass case and so are my sunglasses - no more roughin' it and banging away in my purse...
I hope you have a chance to make one to suit your fancy.
happy crafting-xo
