It's wintertime here in Canada and ironcally that means its sunglass season for me! When there is snow, the sun can be blinding! So out some the sunglasses. I really needed a new sunglass case for my shades and I saw these everywhere on etsy and I thought to myself. . . These look so easy to recreate! So I sat down and drew out some templates and sewed these up in ( I'm not kidding) like ten minutes. . . And that included cutting out the faux leather.
So fast and easy and these would actually make a fantastic last minute gift!
Don't be intimidated by the faux leather, it's super easy to sew with!
Hope you enjoy!

**PRO Tip: Don't pin your template to the leather as they will create permeant holes in your leather!
*PRO tip : Increase your sewing machine stitch length for more defined stitches!
