This summer we are spending a lot of time outside on a trip to Alaska, a family reunion in Idaho, the beach, camping, and swim lessons. All 4 of the kids are in swim lessons this year so I will be poolside quite a bit. Having a stocked pool bag is essential to keep hydrated and protected from the sun’s rays.
I made a sunglasses case in less than 15 minutes and then sat there wondering why it’s taken me decades to do so.

15-Minute Sunglasses Case Sewing Tutorial
Supplies you’ll need to make a sunglasses case:
- 2 (7.5″ x 7.5″) squares of fabric
- 1 (6.5″ x 6.5″) square fusible interfacing or batting
- sewing machine
- Fuse your interfacing/batting to the back of one piece of fabric. I am a quilter and have basting spray around so that’s what I used, but using an iron-on interfacing/batting works great.
- With right sides together, place the lining and outer fabrics together.
- Fold in half and sketch a curve with a pen to one of the corners (NOT ON THE FOLD). You can use a glass or small bowl to help you get the perfect curve.
- Cut out the curve.
6. Stitch around (leaving a gap for turning right-side-out) with a 3/8″ seam.
7. Trim seams and clip curves. Turn right-side out.
8. Tuck raw edges from gap inward and pin.
10. Fold fabric in half, having curved edges lined up. Stitch sides and bottom using a 1//8″ top stitch.
