Sunglasses cases version 1

I had a day of making sunglasses cases yesterday.  I've finished three styles so far, and two of the styles have led me to think of more variations I can make. Now all we need is the sunshine to create a need for sunglasses and I might have a good seller on my hands!
This version is another way of using front pockets.  The pockets will be useful for storing a cloth to clean your sunglasses.  These ones have no fastenings -so good for the car where protection is needed, but maybe not so good for a handbag where they can slip out.

Very simple to make if you fancy having a go yourself.  Mine are 8.5" x 4.5" unsewn - two rectangles of outer fabric and two of lining.  Stitch the top edges of lining and main fabrics together, then stitch round three sides leaving the short lining edge open.  Clip corners and turn, then stitch the open end closed.

I'll be sharing this post at the following link parties:

  3. I need some sunglasses cases myself - great idea to have the extra pocket there for a cloth to wipe them!
