Now, let’s make something cute to hold those sunnies and keep them protected from scratches.

Here’s what you’ll need:

8″X12″ piece of fabric

8″X6″ piece of batting

a couple of scrap pieces of coordinating fabric (if you want to stamp a cute label on the front, this isn’t necessary though!)

Start by placing a couple of coordinating fabrics on the lower left corner of your fabric, making sure to not get too close to the edges of your main fabric.
