Easy DIY Glasses Case

Glasses-Case-107x300 Easy DIY Glasses Case

I am all about using remnants in my sewing when I can because you can get them at 50% – 75% off.  For this project you can use remnants or fat quarters to make a really cute and easy DIY glasses case.  This pattern requires two pieces of fabric and either a plastic snap or Velcro to use as a closure.  This whole project takes about 20 minutes to make from beginning to end is for any level of sewer.

What you will Need:

  • Remnant or fat quarter of exterior fabric
  • Remnant or fat quarter of lining fabric
  • Interfacing like Pellon 808
  • Fusible fleece
  • Plastic snapsir?t=sewvercra-20&l=ur2&o=1&camp=1789 Easy DIY Glasses Case or Velcro.

Step 1: Easy DIY Glasses Case

Cut the outer piece of fabric in a rectangle measuring 7 1/2″ x 10 3/4″.  Cut the lining fabric in a rectangle measuring 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  Take care to make sure that any directional fabric is cut longways.  Cut the interfacing and fusible fleece in the same sizes.
