DIY // Sunglasses Pouch Tutorial

Drinking: Water
Listening: Dashboard Confessional

A few weeks back I shared this post, but I realized I didn't really share any of the steps. Below are the steps I took to make these adorable little bags! 

-Acrylic Paint
-Cotton Twine (I got mine at Dollar Tree!)
-Contact Paper (also Dollar Tree!)

Cut out a piece of fabric is a little bit bigger than your glasses - I made 3 for friends this past weekend. That's why I have 3 different pieces here. 

I made stripes, but you can really make whatever shapes you want. I used contact paper. 

I used 3 different colors of acrylic paint for this specific project. I love that it only takes about 10 minutes to dry!

Once the paint was dry I folded the tops of the ends over on the non-painted side of the fabric and sewed. I made sure that there would be space enough to put string through on the last step. Then I folded it in half on the painted side and sewed up the sides, leaving the space for the string open.

Once everything is sewn up flip your pouch right side out and insert your strings. Your pouch is done! Now go catch some rays and enjoy your new sunglasses case! 

What do you guys do with your sunnies during the Summer months? I love this project because I am always misplacing mine and this helps me keep them in one place!
