Blue Jean DIY Sunglasses Case

"The sun is shining and my shades have come out. I’m fed up of damaging my sunglasses when I’m not wearing them, so decided to design a really handy case for them made from upcycled jeans. Mind you, this is no ordinary sunglasses case. As well as looking great it sports a killer pocket feature for items such as money and cards.I made four of these cases at the same time so I had some spare for gifts.  If making the sunglasses case as a gift, you can make it even more personal by using the recipients  old jeans.  I love mine and use it all the time, I find the pocket bit so handy."

Materials List

  • Old jeans front pocket
  • 22cm Square of cotton fabric for lining
  • 22cm Square of very thin wadding
  • Needle & thread.
  • Scissors and/or rotary cutter
  • Cup or bowl


  1. Firstly you need to cut out a 22cm square of lining fabric, wadding and jeans pocket. I make a 22cm square cardboard template and use this to cut the fabrics with a rotary cutter. When placing over the jeans make sure you get all of the front pocket whilst moving the pocket lining out the way so that it doesn’t get cut as well

  2. The next thing to do is to round off the bottom corners of all the pieces of fabric.

  3. Put the jeans pocket and lining fabric right sides together. Place this on top of the wadding and pin together. Leaving an edge of approximately 5mm, sew round the bottom curved edge and 2 sides of the fabric with a sewing machine. The top should be left open.

  4. Trim excess fabric from the corners and turn the fabric sandwich right side out.

  5. Now carefully turn over a 5mm edge of the lining fabric pin and sew to close the top.

  6. Fold the denim pocket pad in half length ways, with the fabric lining on the inside. Pin and sew round the edge.
