Snappy Bag Sunglass Case Tutorial...


Earlier this week I published a post about a tote I made for a friend...


In addtion to the tote, I made this Snappy Bag Sunglass Case...


Do you remember my Snappy Bag? ...


This little bag is a mini-pouch that has pieces of a metal tape measure in the top casing that forms a "hinge" that snaps open and shut!

Well, I used this same approach when making the Snappy Bag Sunglass Case. The closer at the top of the case snaps shut, with the help of the metal tape measuring pieces, to ensure the sunglasses stay inside the case.


The dimensions of the fabric for the Snappy Bag Sunglass Case are totally different than the Snappy Bag, of course, but the instructions you follow to make it are identical. Here's the tutorial...


Materials needed:
Bag front: 4 1/4" x 13" cotton fabric
Bag lining (& casing for measuring tape):  4 1/4" x 16 3/4" contrasting cotton fabric
Ruffles: Two 2" x 9" strips of same (or other) contrasting cotton fabric
Interfacing: 3 1/2" x 13" fusible fleece interfacing
Two 3" lengths of  3/4" wide metal measuring tape
Thread
Use 3/8" seam allowance. 


Directions: 
You will follow the same directions for the Snappy Bag Sunglass Case as you do for the Snappy Bag. Simply interchange the measurements above for the measurements of the Snappy Bag in the tutorial.
