I have a lot of sunglasses, but not many cases. The cases I do have are either too bulky to carry around, or they only fit the pair the case came with. Do you have the same problem?

A couple years ago, I spotted a wrap-style sunglasses case from Bon Look. It was love at first sight! But even though I really liked the case, I’d much rather spend my money on another pair of sunglasses. Know what I mean?

So, what’s a girl to do? Make her own DIY Sunglasses Case, of course!

Wrap up your sunnies in this gorgeous DIY Sunglasses Case! It's super easy to make + super chic! | Hello Little HomeI had some suede leftover from my DIY suede tassels, and it was the perfect material for this project. The suede protects my sunglasses from scratches, and the compact size fits in my smallest bag.

Best of all, this DIY Sunglasses Case is super easy to make!

Step-by-step tutorial for making a gorgeous DIY Sunglasses Case! It's super easy to make + super chic! | Hello Little HomeHere’s what you need to make your own DIY Sunglasses Case (affiliate links):

* Note: Choose a material that has a lot of substance. Faux suede or leather is fine. You could also use woven fabric instead of leather or suede, but you’ll need to finish the edges to avoid fraying. To use another material, cut out two pieces of the fabric, adding an extra 1/2-inch of seam allowance on all edges. Stack material with right sides facing and sew pieces together a 1/2-inch from the edge. Leave a small opening unstitched. Turn piece inside out through the opening and handstitch the opening closed. Press flat and follow directions for attaching the strap.

Start by printing out the template (get it at the end of the post), making sure to deselect the print option “shrink to fit width” (otherwise the template will print too small). Cut out the template, and wrap it around your sunglasses to make sure it fits. If you need to, make adjustments to the template, such as adding or subtracting width or height.

Place the template on your material and trace around it with a pen or marker.

Cut a strip of material 1/4-inch wide by 25-inches long, as well. This will be for the wraparound strap. Trim one end of the strap on an angle.

Note: You could also use a piece of ribbon if you’d like a contrasting strap.

Align the flat edge of the strap with the middle of the case. Using a needle and thread, sew the strap in place using an x-pattern (see the picture below). Go over the “x” a few times, then knot your thread and trim the ends.

Attach the strap to the bottom center of the case with an “x”, as well. Do not attach the middle part of the strap to the case. This will be kept open to hold your sunglasses in place.

Note: I used white in the picture, but you’ll want the thread to match your material so your stitches don’t show on the finished case. If you have a hard time getting your needle through the suede or leather, use something sharp (like a seam ripper) to pierce a hole first.

Slide one of the temples through the open part of the strap that you just stitched down, like I did below. It will hold your sunglasses in place.
