Sew A Protective & Adorable Glasses Case In 10 Minutes




As a glasses wearer, I know how important it is to have a good case for them. If you travel anywhere with your glasses, you want them to stay protected and scratch-free.

Hard cases obviously work, but if you travel with them, sometimes the hinges get pushed off-center, making the glasses case practically useless.


My last glasses case broke, so I knew I wanted to make my own this time around. I found this quick tutorial on YouTube, and I ended up making one for my sunglasses too! It only took 10 minutes.

Here’s how you do it.

You’ll need:

  • 2 pieces of fabric (5″x20″)
  • 1 piece of fusible fleecing (5″x20″)
  • Needle/thread or sewing machine
  • Iron
  • Optional snap closure or elastic & button
  • Pencil
  • Pins
  • Scissors

First, cut a rounded edge for the flap. Prepare your snap closure or elastic and button if you’re going to use them.

Take the fusible fleece and iron/fuse it on to the wrong side of one of your pieces of fabric. Then, take the other piece of fabric and put the two pieces right sides together.

If you’re using an elastic and a button, sew the elastic in between the two pieces of fabric. Otherwise, sew normally.

If you opted for a snap closure, add that in following the directions on the package. Finish the flap with a top stitch, and you’re done!

Watch the video below and get started on yours. With a little size adjustments, you can easily turn this into a case for anything!
