Alright ladies, who don’t love their sunglasses? If you’re anything like me, every time you see a new pair of cute sunglasses you need to purchase them. Before you know it, you have sunglasses everywhere. I am going to show you how to create an easy sewing project that not only will organize your sunglasses but doubles as a display.
1) Find an old piece of fabric and cut it to the desired length you need in order to organize every single pair of sunglasses you own.
2) Turn the fabric over so that the backside is facing you and hem all the edges.
3) While the fabric is turned backwards, place your rod on the fabric and gently fold the fabric over.
4) Remove the rod, and pin the fabric in place.
5) Sew the fabric where you pinned in, removing the pins as you go.
6) Cut pieces of the elastic to the width of the fabric.
7) Place your largest pair of sunglasses on the fabric and measure where you will be putting your first piece of elastic (the top of the elastic) to the bottom of the sunglasses. Add 1/4 inch and make a mark with a pencil. This is where the next piece of elastic will go. Repeat for all pieces of elastic you will be sewing onto your sunglasses holder.
8) Sew only the cut edges of elastic onto the fabric. Once you have a piece of elastic attached to the fabric, measure a fourth of an inch and attach the elastic to the fabric by sewing. This is repeated until you have multiple slots that you can hang sunglasses off one piece of elastic.
9) Repeat for all your elastic.
10) Slide your rod into the opening at the top of the fabric, and attach a string to hang.
