DIY Leather Sunglasses Case
Here you will find the tips on how to make your leather sunglasses case. This tutorial you can use for sewing with artificial or genuine leather.
For sewing a case of sunglasses I used artificial leather. For inner part of sunglasses case I used thin and soft quilted fabric. The quilted fabric or another soft material is needed to protect the smooth surface of the glasses.
To decorate the edge you will need a tape.
Put the glasses on the paper and outline the contours without forgetting to add the seam allowances.
Making the pattern for sunglasses case is very easy. So I will not do the construction of patterns and calculations.
Now you need cut two part of lining and two equal part of leather case, as shown.
At this stage you need to sew the lining to to the leather parts, as shown. Attach the front side of the lining to the front of the cover.
Sew the both detail together, leaving 1 cm on each side of the seam.
Now you need stitch both part of lining together, leaving seam allowance 1 cm.
Now you need to trim the allowance, as shown in this photo.
The sewing machine is no longer required. But you need a special tool - a hole punch for leather.
The holes you need to make along the edge of the sunglasses case.
Holes on both parts of the cover must be symmetrical. Before making the holes put both parts together and fasten the edges with clips.
Through these holes you will need to insert the tape.
You can use an another type of tape or the cord.
A special tool can be used to pull the cord through the holes of the sunglasses case.
The ends of the tape can be hidden inside the cover, as shown.
The making of leather sunglasses case is finished.
It's time to put the glasses in the cover.
