How to Make an AirPods Case

I recently got a set of AirPods and decided to make a case for them that I could attach to my purse. I came across this super simple AirPods case on Sewing Times on YouTube and decided if I was going to make it I would share it with you. This project is a little fidgety because it is so small but it is definitely doable. Just take your time. This is an intermediate sewing project because of the size and the zipper. If you would some oof my handbag projects to attach this to head over to my handbag page.

I used basic quilting cotton and fusible fleece that I purchased at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores online and picked up in store for this project. You could head to Amazon fabrics or onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your AirPods case.

What you will Need: How to Make an AirPods Case

Step 1: Cut out your Fabrics

From the outer and lining fabrics cut one piece each that measure 4 3/4 x 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″ x 3″ and 2 3/8″ x 4 3/8″. From just the outer fabric cut one piece that measures 1 5/8 x 2″ for the tab. Finally, from the fusible fleece cut one piece each 4″ x 1″, 4′ x 2 1/4″ and 1 5/8″ x 3 5/8″.

Step 2: Fuse the Fleece

Fuse the fleece pieces to the corresponding outer fabric pieces following the manufacturer’s instructions and using a hot iron.

Step 3: Create the Tab

Take the route tab piece and fold the long raw edges to the center. Fold in half to enclose the raw edges. Stitch down one side of the tab. Fold the tab piece around the 1/2″ swivel clip and clip with a wonder clip. Set aside.

Step 3: Add the Zipper

Place the 4 3/4″ x 3″ piece of outer fabric right sides up on your work station. Lay the zipper right sides down in the center on the outer piece. Stitch along the top. Turn the zipper right sides out and place it right sides together with the bottom of the 4 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ piece. Turn the entire piece right sides out and topstitch along both sides of the zipper.

Step 4: Add the Side Panel

Place the 2 3/8″ 4 3/8″ piece along the right side of the zipper panel you just created right sides together. Stitch using a 3/8″ seam allowance.

Step 5: Add the Tab and Swivel Clip

Measure down 1 3/8″ from the top the side panel and place the tab so that the swivel clip is facing toward the wiper. Stitch the tab to the side panel.

Step 6: Stitch the Sides of the Case Together

Open the zipper. Place the top raw edges together and the bottom raw edges together and clip. Stitch the sides together using a 3/8 seam allowance.

Step 7: Stitch the Top and Bottom

Fold the piece so that the two side seams are together. Mark the centers on each end on the top and the bottom. Fold the centers that you just marked so that they are together on the top and the bottom. Stitch the top and bottom using a 3/8″ seam allowance.

Step 8: Box the Corners

Snip the seam allowance on each corner of the piece. Pinch each corner to for a small boxed corner and clip using wonder clips. Stitch along each corner where it measures 3/4″. Trim off the excess.

Step 9: Create the Lining

Take the 4 3/4″ x 3″ and the 4 3/4 x 1 3/4 lining pieces and fold down one long end by 3/8″ and press. Place the side panel so that it meets the top and bottom raw edges and stitch the pieces together using a 3/8″ seam allowance. Fold the piece over and stitch the other dish of the side panel. Find the centers and box the covers in the same way you did or the outer case. Turn the lining right sides out.

Step 10: Add the outer Case to the Lining

Place the outer case inside the lining cases so that they are wrong sides together. Hand stitch the lining to the zipper using invisible or ladder stitch. Turn the case right sides out through the open zipper and add you AirPods. you have now created your AirPods case.
