Learn how to make a DIY sunglasses case by upcycling a sleeve or pair of leggings. Reuse the hem for fast sewing and a scrap of fleece for cushion.
I’ve gotten to the point where basically if I’m outside, I’m wearing sunglasses. I love having a pair of cheap sunglasses in my car, in my purse, and near the front door.
I made an easy DIY sunglasses case by upcycling the sleeve of a t-shirt. If my kids get holes or stains on their sleeves I cut them into short sleeves.
– Bottom half of sleeves or pant legs – Sunglasses – Small piece of felt, fleece, or batting – Snaps, buttons, or velcro – Sewing tools – Sewing machine
Lay the sunglasses over the sleeves and cut both of the sleeves 1.5 inches longer than the sunglasses.
Cut a piece of fleece the same size as the case (as if it was opened up) and add a small seam allowance to the sides. Cut the fleece 1/2 inch shorter.
Fold the piece of fleece in half and sew one side to make a tube. The side you sew will line up with the original seam of the sleeve.
