Summer is well on the way and I imagine I’m not the only one with a pair (or a few) sunglasses in their bag. What bugs me is the fact that either I lose my sunglasses cases or they’re just plain too bulky for me to slip into my tiny little bag.

So I end up creating one (or more) cases for my sunnies – and I’m sharing with you how I made this and the template I used so that you can create your very own!

DIY Sunglasses Case

Supplies:

To create some interest, cut out some metallic gold vinyl for the sunglasses area to create a reflective look. Iron it down like you did in the previous step, peel off the carrier sheet and you are done!
