I get pretty upset when I have to go out and I don’t have a pouch to put my sunglasses in. They end up getting scratched or even broken, So to help me in my plight, I decided to make pouches for the pairs of sunglasses that didn’t have.
It is a very simple/easy process and takes just about 3-5minutes.
DIY Sunglasses Pouch…
For this project you will need:
- A small piece of fabric
- safety pin
- office pins
- sewing machine or Needle and thread.
If you don’t know how to sew using a sewing machine, worry not. You can sew by hand. Now to the easy steps.
Place your sunglasses on the fabric and mark out your desired size. It is important to leave enough sewing room and space for the sunglasses too so don’t make your pouch too small and not too big too.
Cut off the excess fabric. Remember not to cut off too much or else your pouch will become too small and your sunglasses wont fit in.
Fold your fabric right sides facing each other, then fold the top part over half an inch (or an inch depending on the size of your elastic or ribbon). Pin in place.
Now read this part carefully. sew the folded top fabric first (you have to place your fabric flat to do this). Then fold again and sew the two ends of the fabric skipping the beginning by half an inch. Got that?
Depending on how tight you want the opening of your DIY sunglasses pouch to be, cut your elastic band (length) and use a safety-pin to secure it. Pass the elastic through the space left at the top. Don’t forget to secure the other end.
Sew the two ends of the elastic band together, then close (sew) the opening and voila, you have your sunglasses pouch. Easy peasy right?
So cool! I would totally do this if I wore sunglasses often.
Hi Ella. You could still make for your sunglasses that don’t have pouches or even do your prescribed glasses if you wear those too.
this is pretty nice .
i love the fabric

Thanks alot love. Please tag me when you do so I can see yours.
This is actually really creative girl. I never thought of this but honestly a lot of my sunglasses need pouches so I’m going to try this. And the great part is that is can be hand sewn which is perfect.
Thank you very much dear.
Thia makes so much sense. thanks Grace
