Hand-Crafted Christmas: Sunglasses Case

So here is part one of the intense (well at least for me) sewing I did while I was unemployed. Because of the unemployment issue I decided to make as many gifts as possible. I took the sunglasses case idea from this awesome tutorial over at My Blond Ambitions and made a couple for sunglasses and two smaller versions for reading glasses. My mom and sister gave me these really cute tags that have my name on them and I finally got to put them to good use! These little pouches also gave me the chance to finally try making a ruffle. I have been so intimidated by ruffles that I have refused to try and instead would pawn off the task to my mother. I really don't know what I was so terrified about, yes they take time, but they aren't nearly as challenging as I made them out to be.

The details


  1. Those turned out so cute! I love the detailing you did. My Christmas present to myself was a ruffler foot for my sewing machine... maybe I will try it on this project. Thanks so much for sharing it.

  2. Robyn- where do you get your buttons? They are always just so amazing. Are they wood?

  3. Yeah, well they claimed to be wood. I always just go to JoAnns.
