Retro Sunglasses

Paper Pieced Sunglasses

 I  made a cute  sunglasses  case project  the other day.
{Isn't this January??}
 "Sew why did I make a sunglasses pouch now?"
Even though it has  been cold here.... we have had a lot of bright, sunny days.  And , besides, it is a fast and fun Retro styled  paper pieced design by Janeen, of Quilt Art Designs.  'Nuff said!

Pattern:   Retro Sunglasses     design by Janeen of Quilt Art Designs blog
               -  from issue # 8   of  Paper Piecing 1/4 "  Digital Magazine  (here ) Jan-Mar 2016

Size:  4 1/2 " high by 8 " across.   I added a 2 inch band across the top .

Fabrics:  Scraps-  bright and colorful 
              Scrap Pellon fusible fleece 987  (on the outer pouch fabric wrong side)

The eyeglass  pattern is fun and easy to make.

My pouch/case is plenty wide for a large pair of sunglasses.  I could've made the pattern into a zippered  or snap pouch, too.  

I smile when I see my  brightly colored vintage style sunglasses case.

There are lots of other fun and stylish Retro patterns in this new issue of the Paper Piecing 1/4 "digital magazine ( Jan - Mar 2016).    Keep  "an eye out"  for what I make next out of it!

I'm off to my sewing room!

  1. Your retro glasses case is such fun - your fabric choices fit perfectly. This would make a good 'thank you' gift for a glasses-wearing teacher at the end of the school year too.

  2. That cheery sunglasses case would brighten the most dismal days of winter Susie! You do such a great job with your paper piecing and fabric selections!

  3. I love your choices of fabric you used!!!
