Leather Sunglasses Case | DIY

 Summer is coming up so the sunglasses have already emerged full time. I love how this project came out because it is so versatile! I had original plans for this case, but halfway through I made some changes. If you don’t have a Cricut, don’t worry! You can easily make a design on your sunglasses case with a paint pen or x-acto knife!

 Materials: Leather (I used a veg tan), Cricut machine (optional) , X-acto knife, this template, Scissors, Sunglasses to measure, Sewing Machine.

Process: Download and cut out template. Trace on the back of the leather and cut out. This is when you’ll add any design you want. I used a Cricut to cut in a design and on one case I wrote “shades.” Fold the bottom of the template (with the straight edge) up and line one side along the middle of the case and sew. Repeat this on the other side. Cut a 10 inch strip of leather and sew to the back of the case. Put your sunglasses inside and you are ready to go!
