DIY Leather Sunglasses Case

I recently picked up these pair of mirrored black sunglasses from Urban Outfitters and I absolutely ADORE them, but not an hour later of my purchase I got fingerprints on one of the lenses. :( Then I realized I couldn’t just toss them in my purse like all the sunglasses I owned since they’d get scratched and damaged more easily. Doing what a typical DIY-er would do, I made a case instead of buying one to house my new sunnies.

This case is made out of faux-leather and is super chic. It’s also one of the easiest DIYs I’ve ever attempted so I’m showing you how to make your own today in this tutorial. Keep on scrolling to find the instructions!

Instructions

Materials:
– 1/4 yard of faux leather (I got a yard for $4 at Joann’s and only used up around 1/16th of it!)
– thick thread + needle
– exacto knife or scissors
– ruler
– a pattern (click HERE to download)

Print out the pattern from the link above. Make sure to set it at “no-scaling” or “100%.” Measure the test 1″ square to see if it’s really 1″. The pattern fits my sunglasses perfectly, but you may have to adjust the pattern if your sunglasses are larger or smaller. Cut out the pattern. DIY Leather Sunglasses Case


Cut out a piece of leather using your pattern.

Fold the bottom flap up and match up the side edges. Here I clipped the edges together using sewing clips to show you how it’s suppose to look. The flap will gape open a bit and it’s to create volume/space for your sunglasses. DIY Leather Sunglasses Case

Starting from one corner, sew close to the sides and around the flap to the other corner.

Cut a long strip of leather to act as the closure for the case and sew it to the center of the flap. And that’s about it! To close your case, just wrap the leather strip around a couple times and tuck the loose end in. DIY Leather Sunglasses Case
