My kids know the drill. We scramble to get ready, throw on our shoes, and then everyone piles into the car, hoping that we can make it to our destination on time. But then, hold on! Mom has to run back into the house to get her sunglasses.
It happens every time! And I know what you're thinking. "Why don't you just leave your sunglasses in the car?" I don't have a good answer for that. I guess that when I get home all I can think about is getting my monkeys back into the house. But now I *think* I have a solution!
Today Morgan is teaching us how to make this cozy sunglasses case! Perfect for ME! Surely if I make a really cute one for myself using my favorite fabric, I will see it sitting there in the car and won't be able to resist putting my sunglasses in it before I leave. Maybe? Another great feature of this glasses case is that it is lined with fusible fleece so it can keep them a little safer to throw into your purse or diaper bag. Let's begin! Here's Morgan:
To start you will need 3 inches of 1/4" elastic, a button, two scraps of 8"x 8" fabric and one piece of fusible fleece that is also 8"x 8".
First, fuse your fleece to one of your pieces of fabric, as shown below.
Next with your fused fabric facing right side up, fold and pin your elastic 3" in from the edge, as shown below.
Now you lay your other piece of fabric on top (right sides together) and sew along all four sides, leaving a 1" gap where you start.
Clip your corners and turn right side out.
Then fold in half and top stitch 1/8" from the edge as shown below.
Last of all, you just need to sew on the button where the elastic will loop over it. And just like that, you're done!
Now you have a super cute and comfy place for your sunglasses to hang out while you're not using them.
