    DIY: No-Sew Bandanna Sunglasses Case

    Whether you saved up for your favorite sunglasses for months or bought them for a super cheap price at your local discount store, you’ll want to protect the sensitive lenses from getting scratched. Between being tossed around in your purse and carried from home to car to school to work, your sunglasses can easily get mangled. If they didn’t come with a hard case (or it’s too bulky for you to use), consider making your own chic case to carry your shades!

    SUPPLIES:

    • Bandanna
    • Scissors
    • No-sew tape
    • Colorful rope, cord or string

     

    DIRECTIONS:

    1. Cut a piece of fabric from the corner of the bandanna about 10.5 inches wide by 8 inches tall. If you have supersize sunglasses, test the fit before cutting. Use the corner so you already have two seamed edges—you’ll need less tape. If you’re making several cases and run out of corners, then cut one long piece of fabric and fold in half so you don’t have to tape the bottom.
    2. Fold the fabric in half and line up the cut edges. Try your sunglasses to make sure they fit. [The author ended up trimming hers down to about 8 inches wide.] Then apply the no-sew fabric tape along the edges (you can cut it half for a thinner strip). Peel away the backing and press the fabric together.
    3. Fold the top down about 1.5 inches and tape. Note: You can also fold down and tape the top edge before folding the case in half. This may make feeding the string easier!
    4. Cut a 25-inch piece of string and fold in half. Find the middle and pull through the top with a bobby pin. Pull the ends through the loop and knot. Cut any excess. Add tape to any remaining areas.
    5. Instead of using one pull, you can bring the strings out of both sides. Either way works!
