I can’t wait for the summer holidays! But there is still a long month to wait…so in the meanwhile we can make stuff for the beach, or any other sunny place you gonna go. Today, let’s make a sunglasses case. It’s easy to do and you don’t even need a sewing machine for this project.
- Leather or faux leather
- 2 wooden beads
- a ribbon
- super glue
- scissors and cutter
In the leather, cut a rectangle of 8’x 10’
Fold the leather piece in 3 equal parts. Glue the edges of two parts together to make a pocket. The super glue works really fast, be careful not to glue your fingers ( I know this sounds silly but it’s happened once and it wasn’t funny at all)
Trim the corners of the flap. You can use a small round recipient as guide.
Cut a leather circle, and glue it inside the flap. Try to center it.
In the middle of the circle make a hole to pass the ribbon. You can use a punch or a cutter.
Pass the ribbon in the hole and attach it. Put a bead at each end of the ribbon and make a knot.
And your new sunglasses case is ready! To close it, you just have to wrap the ribbon around the case and slide the beads under it. Now you can enjoy the summer with a new classy sunglasses case!
