I do not know about you, but I have a bit of a purse difficulty. I have everything I could ever possibly need for the subsequent year shoved into my purse, and all the snacks, hand lotion, and miscellaneous candy (that was generally put there by my husband) can occasionally depart a bit of a mess on bad innocent bystander products- like my sunglasses. I normally have to wipe some sort of crumbs off my sunnies just before I place them on, so it seemed like a leather sunglasses case to shield my shades was in buy. Here’s what I did:Supplies: Thin leather (real or faux) in two diverse colors, leather glue, fabric scissors, one/two” magnetic snap.
1. Reduce a papertemplate that is 8.5 x four inches. Trace two of the rectangles onto the wrong side of your primary colour of leather and lower them out. two. Making use of your 2nd leather choice, lower out your accent form for the front of your pouch. three. Use the leather glue to glue your leather shape onto the front side of a single of your outside leather panels (glue the shape off center so it will be centered once the pouch is comprehensive). Sew around the edge of the accent form for added hold. four. Subsequent, you’ll want to attach the magnetic snaps. With the center of your snap about 3/4″ inch away from the prime of your principal panels, push the prong side of the snaps face down onto the leather so that an indent appears. Use an X-Acto knife to make two modest slits in the leather exactly where the two indents are so you can push the prongs by means of to the other side (make positive the magnetic sides are on the appropriate side of the leather). Slide the silver backings onto the prongs on the wrong side of the leather, and push the prongs flat. 5. Fold the leading of each and every leather panel so that the magnetic sides are now facing inward, and sew straight across the bottom of the fold to safe. six. Location your leather panels with each other with the appropriate sides dealing with inward, and glue the outside edges togethereven though leaving the prime open (gluing the leather is less difficult than making an attempt to pin it with each other). As soon as the glue is dry, sew about the edges with a 1/4″ seam allowance, and round the bottom edges as you sew so it really is less difficult to flip within out. seven. Flip your pouch the proper way out and you have a new property for your sunnies!I can presently inform that this is going to hold my sunglasses cleaner and make them much simpler to discover in my purse than they were before. Plus, it makes a great present thought as well. Believe of all the diverse patterns you could do on the front: hearts, stripes…cats! Oh man, I guess I have a few much more to make! xo. Laura
