Clip On Sunglass Holder Tutorial

Good Evening!

I needed a new case for my clip on sunglasses, so I made up a pattern and took pictures along the way. These are quick to whip up, maybe half an hour tops. I used two coordinating fabrics from Moda's "Neptune".

One 6"x7" square of your primary fabric
One 6"x7" square of batting
One 2 1/4"x6" square of contrasting fabric
One 5 1/4"x6" square of fleece or soft fabric
dare I mention?...seam ripper?

Note: all seams are 1/4"

1. Cut fabric into sizes listed in materials list.

2. Sew contrasting fabric (2 1/4"x6") to fleece (5 1/4" x 6") along 6" sides. Iron seam open. This will be your inside fabric.

3. Make fabric sandwich layering batting, then Outside fabric, right side up, followed by Inside fabric, wrong side up.

4. With white pencil, make two marks on upper right hand edge of sandwich. From top right corner, mark 2" down and 2 1/2" to the left from the corner. Draw a line with the white pencil connecting these two marks. It should look like a triangle.

5. Cut off this triangle on the white line.

6. Sew around all edges edge leaving 2" opening along one side (to turn inside out).

7. Trim edges and corners to 1/4" from seam. Do NOT trim 2" area left open to turn inside out.

8. Turn inside out. Iron carefully.

9. At 2" opening, iron seams in.

10. Top stitch along top of case and down right side until you reach fleece. (Recommend double stitching for best look. Would not use double needle because the bobbin stitching is not attractive and it will be seen).

11. Now fold case in half length-wise as it will look when finished. Double stitch top stitch along sides.

12. Wala!

We fly out tomorrow to pick up my father-in-law in Destin, Florida. From there we will drive two days to Wilmington, North Carolina for my husband's family reunion. We have an annual golf tournament with a trophy and lots of food. I won't be able to blog during this week. So, I'll see you next week. Hope you have a good one!
