Summer is in full swing here, and that means my sunglasses are getting a lot of use! I am constantly misplacing them, and know that if I have a sunglass case, they wouldn’;t go missing in my purse! I have a great leather sunglass case tutorial for you today using just a few scraps of leather. Leather can sound a little bit intimidating to sewlinen cushion covers, but it’;s actually not too complicated.

Let me start by giving you a few leather sewing tips:

Now that we have a few leather sewing tips under?our belts, we are ready to sew the sunglass case.

Print out the leather sunglass case pattern above. It will print out on two pages. Line up the triangles in the middle, between page one and two, and tape together. ?Make sure when printing the pattern that you have selected print to actual size and auto portrait/landscape. Once the pattern is printed and taped, cut your leather for your project.

Topstitch the top edge(s) of the front and back pattern pieces, as well as the top and bottom long edges of the front flap closure.

Measure down 2 inches from the top of the front of the sunglass case and stitch the front flap closure along the sides using a 1/4 inch seam. Remember to use binder or clover clips and not pins to hold the leather pieces in place.

With right sides together, sew the front and back sunglass case pieces together on three sides using a 3/8 inch seam allowance, leaving the top of the front un-stitched (that is the edge that you added topstitching to earlier). ?

Trim the bottom two corners to make it easier to turn those corners to a point. Flip the project right side out, making sure the front flap piece is in the front. Use a point turner?to help get your corners turned completely out. And that’;s it! Your sunglasses are now ready to go into their new case!

I can’;t wait to see all of the leather projects you start sewing! ?I should note that my favorite source to find leather is from old leather jackets at the thrift store…;you can’;t beat the price and it feels good to reuse a little bit of something old!
